Guide to Youth Soccer

Work has begun on the Ranting Soccer Dad Guide to Youth Soccer, which will include (among other things) a region-by-region guide to youth leagues and programs.

The idea here is to arm parents with information. This is a warning to coaches who try to tell parents their programs provide some unique path to colleges or the pros. We’re going to give parents a buyers’ guide.

Rather than write a book that would be instantly outdated, I’ve opted to do this as an ongoing project through Patreon, where you can access it for as little as $1/month.


As of March, I’m just starting. So there’s not much to read, but you can get in on the ground floor and help guide me as I write the guide.
