anyone have a child who plays select sports. Son always asked to play ball with select and reg. team. Wondering if this is too much for them or really helps. Coaches say its good for high school chances. Worry about burn-out but he loves it.

I used to play select soccer (even though I hated it) for the La Plata Black Hawks.....It probably shouldn't be too much if he is really into it...dad kinda pushed me into it....not a people person over here lol.

But back on topic....if you are worried about the schedule and practices...the practices are about the same...but the games you travel a little bit more...we mostly went around Southern Maryland, but occasionally PG.

I played select soccer in highschool and loved it. I also played for McDonough, and Fairfax for 2 years when I lived in Virginia. If a child enjoys a sport, I think it's a great! There was a little more pressure from the coach, but that's expected when you're one among "The Best of The Best!" :cool:
