    Not sure what HS you play for but ours isn't like that and we make CIF Div 1 every year. Our HS only does 2 or 3 practices a week when the season starts but can play games twice a week. Plus, HS is a joke with training and nothing compared to club. Plus, the HS season is short lived and so players can recover after the short 4 month season. Are you really comparing HS training to academy training? Not sure what you mean by "all afternoon". We have away games but they usually are less than 20 miles away and start at 6'ish.

    First and foremost, most parents will never complain. I have been on several teams where I was the only one who spoke up on an issue only to be approached later by parents saying they agree. Most parents are too weak to speak the truth and would rather just wait and see. Again, not speaking for all but for most. I think for the right elite athlete and right training (with recovery methods), 4 days could work. I just hear that the recovery isn't there for some of these clubs, especially at the younger ages where it's more important (like 04's, 03's). I do agree, however, that at the 02 and above ages, 4 days is more realistic as they need to man up for college and have usually stopped growing.

    You just said everything that Simi said. So your “20 miles”away games that start at 6ish don’t take all afternoon? What time does the bus leave the school and what time does it get back? I would call that “all afternoon.”

    They don't train 4 days a week in college during the season. It's more like 2 training days plus film and walk through of specific game stuff. Then games Thursday/Sunday or Friday/Sunday. On my kids team the players that play 30 minutes or more don't even do regular conditioning. It's hard for the players that play heavy minutes to recover trust me on this and the condensed schedule is brutal on those players.

    OMG. I know that yelling dad filming. Coach Beach Dad, 2nd in Command, giving orders on the sideline. :)
    Nah, it's all good. Your player is very good and your filming is excellent.

    Is that a http://soloshot.com camera one of the other parents is using to film the game? Are they happy with the quality/results?

    I have known two people that had them and both had issues.

    1. Even when working correctly, they track the player and not the ball. Be sure to zoom back to get at least 1/3 of the field so you don't see your player running around, then the ball comes into the frame, the player kicks the ball and the ball goes out of the frame.
    2. One dad had problems with it putting his player all the way to one side of the frame.
    3. The battery is not easily replaceable. If you run out of charge, the entire camera needs to be plugged into a charger.

    Thanks @outside!. Where would the player put the sensor?

    It should not be outside the uniform per FIFA laws. The arm band is illegal. Must be under the uniform.

    That makes sense @MWN. A quick search and I found that the National Federation of State High School Associations has ruled solo shot tags illegal in all cases. Probably illegal under the FIFA rules too and not worth the hassle.

    Figure out a way to wear it in the hard, unyielding shoe.

    Bio sensors are worn on vests under the uniform on the back of the neck/spine, the electronics sit in padded pockets in a vest. For the soloshot to be "legal" it needs to simply follow the model of bio tracking devices. The problem (not insurmountable), from what I see is the solo shot transmitter is a bit bulky and could be painful to a player falling on it if on the spine.

    Perhaps build it into the hard, unyielding, but mandatory, shinpads.

    Haven't seen, or even know what Bio Sensors are but my younger son would occasionally wear a DA GPS and it looked more like a bra than anything else. Why wouldn't that work for the Solo Shot GPS? Is it different technology? I like the idea of the Solo Shot so that nobody has to rotate filming duties.

    Until they can put the sensor in the ball, the Solo Shot camera will be of limited use for soccer.

    Bio Sensors is the broad category name, which includes GPS. The more advanced Bio Sensors measure additional physical attributes, pulse, temperature, lactate acid levels, etc., in addition to GPS, which just measures how far the kid ran around the pitch. The Biosensors, like GPS modules can be relatively small because they don't transmit live data (transmitters are bulky and require more power). It would be possible to spread the electronics out in a "bra" or "vest," to support transmitting for the solo shot, but I have yet to see that solution.

    A player from my kid's former team uses Solo Shot. She wears the sensor on a band around her waist under her jersey. Family says it allows you to pan out to get a wider angle which may or may not include the ball. It has some flaws, but it has some merits, too.

    “Since being a founding member of the ECNL in 2009, the club has been a first-hand witness to the league’s proven pathway for individual growth and player development."

    Must be very special. They used the words Pathway and Development in the same sentence.
