The small community decided last year to stop keeping score in soccer games, as did all leagues in the Ontario Soccer Association, the website reported.

“Unfortunately, when you put an overemphasis on competition, individual skill development regresses, and that’s what’s happened in our game for so long,” said Alex Chiet, technical director of the soccer group.

“The ball-less soccer this year as a challenge from a coaching perspective,” said Keith Schultz, head coach of a ball-less Midlake team for children under the age of 11, according to the report. “I have to do a lot of imagining.”

    This same thing happened in youth baseball years back (I quit coaching ) and I told them in real life score is kept and in real life high school and college are competitive!
    The generation from this period can’t take criticism and runs to a lawyer or mommy when they get canned!
