Other than missing the one superstar per team, how will they be that different? And if that one superstar is that transcendent, oughtn't he play with kids on his/her level?
I've seen a fair bit of angst and gnashing of teeth on this decision among the soccer Twitterati. I don't get it, personally. If you're that good at 14 that you know you have a shot at playing pro ball, why would you even consider your highschool team? This can only be good for the long-term growth of American soccer. Our kids will learn how to be pros much earlier than they would otherwise. Simply the act of choosing the academy puts them in a different class of player. Good for the kids, great for the program.
