He is a 2010, skill level, Scale of 1 thru 10, (10 being the highest), I would say 7.


At that age it's all about development. No team is perfect. Ideally, you want a good coach and good players for him to practice against. Most important is where will he have the most fun with friends and look forward to it, so that he tries really hard. Usually what they get out of it is a byproduct of how much they put into it. Keep it fun


Yes keep it fun he's only U9/ 10?? Pressure will only lead him to quit at 15/16

Agreed. Also go to the place that's closest, easiest, most fun and has a parent pool you want to talk to as you'll be spending a lot of time with them in the next few years. There will be so many changes both in any team that you are on and in your son's physique that it's way too early to be sacrificing yourself unless he's so keen to excel that he's out in the garden daily for hours, kicking a ball against the garage wall. There are so many hurdles ahead of you both and then just wait until soccer's competitors kick in - girls, cars, weed, video games, beer and sloth - in no particular order. Don't get too caught up in it too early, if he is keen, your son will find his own peer group and tell you where he wants to be. By the time they are 16, all the better players on the Island will know each other, how they rank and they'll make sure they play together. And promise yourself you'll never coach from the sideline, or call out the ref, you'll have several stress free years ahead if you can follow that, as it's truly only a game. It's ultimately odd to see them at U18, with their beards and men's physiques running around in shorts after a ball. So many of them grow out of it, even the ones with promise, they'd rather go the college they prefer than sacrifice their education and more importantly, their social life for a pointless game that no-one will be watching anyway. Chill, enjoy and don't get too caught up in it. Wish someone had told me that eight years ago.

Very insightful. That being said, which of the mentioned clubs in original post would you suggest?

It seriously does depend on where you live, as you'll be driving to training but I'd definitely remove Albertson immediately. Garden City is strong and super intense but a lot of the kids are big on Lacrosse, Farmingdale is family friendly with good turf, Lynbrook is hard to park at, Mineola can be a bit brutal, I have seen nasty coaches 'I could put nine traffic cones on the field and they'd play better than you', Hota is excellent but do you want to spend and I really don't know much about NHP. All I know is my wife never forgave me when my kid moved from a lovely town team with a great parents' sideline to a super-serious, predominantly Latino team with few parents at the games and none she could converse with. Still hasn't. Don't underestimate the social side of it. Your kid will need to want to have the boys over your house and you'll be away in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Jersey half the time, so if it's not a peer group you identify with, stay away, at least until he hits his full height and you know where you really stand.

PS One club you are missing is Levittown, I'd probably be looking there first.

Good luck, stay sane.
