Many soccer players that are entering their senior year or are seniors are casting a very enthusiastic eye towards playing in college with a possible view of a career as a professional soccer player thereafter.
While this has been a dream and goal of many students that have gone before you many if not all will tell you from past experience that they have not continued on the same trajectory in there development as soccer player as they did prior to entering the college game.
Many of the players entering into the current college system regresses the player rather than progresses players in their development.
The reason for this is quite simple, if you are familiar with the Malcolm Gladwell that it takes 10,000 hours of deliberate practice to become an expert in any specialized skill set, Meaning …
(People aren’t born geniuses they get there through effort) you begin to understand that while you may get great coaching and competition at some schools you are only participating at a fraction of the time that you need to while you are at most training and playing 3 months out of the year.
The fact is you are now seeing some of the brightest and best college players beginning to leave college early to pursue their dream of having a professional career having had this experience.
Turns out that Malcom Gladstone’s quote of the 10,000 hours turns out to be around 20 hours a week of deliberate practice per week for 10 years, how do you achieve those hours of practice while at college.
In fact if a European/South American Player begins playing at the same time as a American based youth player at 8 years old there soccer age to player age will greatly differ from each other while the soccer age for a American player at 22 years old will only be equivalent to the other players at 16-19 years.
