Many kids can't pass a soccer ball to their teammates feet. They pass the ball and the teammate has to run to get it.

Youth soccer in the U.S. is pretty sad.
I have been watching soccer in the US for many years and I concur with CQ 100%.

Another thing is that American TV sponsor don't want soccer in this country. It's much easier to put commercials in baseball or football.
