  • USA – 15,300 per year
  • Europe – 75,600 per year
  • Youth Soccer Career – 500,000 more by Europe
  • Take a step back and not worry about drills and just play games of 1 vs 1, 2 vs 2, 3 vs 3 and 5 vs 5 at practice with little instruction
  • Small sided competitions unintentionally/naturally teach the game to the players with little input from coaches.
