Not sure what kind of soccer they play up there but I have worked with our local youth soccer league - ages 4-14 and about 300 kids participating in each fall and spring - and i only know of one injury that required a doctor's care and that was where two somewhat non-athletic 13 year old girls collided an done fell backwards and popped her collarbone. Others have been taken to the doctor but no care was required. Considering all the hours of soccer and the number of players and coaches, etc I would say that is a great record.Ahh, the beauty of youth soccer... the clock keeps ticking as they drag the casualties off the field and the game is over in an hour.
We also are very strict on how rough they can play, having the right equipment, and focus on learning the game and having fun and not on winning the game. Of course the kids keep score but number one is for a kid to ahve fun at a sport because then they will play it when they are not at practice or a game and that is when they will get good.
