Is youth soccer doomed to suck?

Flying solo on Ranting Soccer Dad this week and wondering whether there’s any way youth soccer can be a positive experience. Making an inherently zero-sum game (winners and losers) a good experience is a challenge, and from what I’ve seen, U.S. Soccer and today’s youth coaches aren’t up to it.

Convince me otherwise.
