My brother, who has not trained a day in his life, decided last night that he wants to try out. I tried to tell him that it’s unrealistic, and that he is out of shape and needed to start 5 years ago to have any chance. He is 19. The only soccer experience he has is playing on the streets and playing in house league. He can’t run more than 2 minutes and his aim is horrendous.
I’m not trying to be pessimistic, I’m being realistic. I’ve played rep in the first tier, along with whitby and Woodbridge, and I know I would NOT get in even if I tried. I remember seeing the kids on the academy team and they’re all 6 foot and fast af.
But I could be wrong and that’s why I’m asking this. Am I wrong?
