Canadian Youth Soccer Leagues Stop Keeping Score

” I heard about this on Red Eye Radio about an hour ago and it’s too silly to let go without comment. Some youth soccer leagues in Canada have decided not to keep score of the games or publish the standings of teams, anymore. I guess this is all part of the “helping self-esteem” movement for kids. From the Toronto Star:

Tessa’s league is one of many across the province that will stop keeping score and tabulating standings this season in an attempt to shift the focus of kids’ soccer away from winning and toward skills development.

Some leagues and age groups started last season, others will adopt the approach this year, and by 2014 it will be mandatory across Ontario for all competitive players under 12.

It’s part of a well-established, research-supported and holistic approach to player development, common in soccer-rich countries and endorsed by the sport’s brightest minds.”

Unfathomable

RE-ELECT NO ONE !

“Overall, the fiscal imbalance is equal to 5.7 percent of the present value of all future GDP, which translates into about 31 percent of the long run federal revenue estimate,” the report states. “Thus federal revenues would have to rise immediately and permanently to 24.1 percent of GDP to cover the fiscal imbalance.” “
