I was never good enough to play sports at an elite level as a kid. I knew that, and enjoyed my time playing soccer, baseball and then club level volleyball in college.
However, my son is one of those kids.
At what point is it appropriate to take him off the fun teams with his friends, and put him into a program where he could grow his skills faster?
He has been invited to join an elite travel team. It would mean leaving behind 4 other kids who he has played with forever (and won more than they lost).
No illusions of grandeur. I dont think he can play professionally.
