I have a U12 player who is very unfit. He has 2 real problems being he has Asthma and is also quite a bit over weight.
When he plays he complains about his knees and ankles, i would think that the weight is causing issues with the joints. The asthma means that he can only run for a couple of hundred meters before he starts to say he can run any more.
He becomes very frustrated at himself and us because he can't keep up with what either us coaches or he wants to do
On the plus side he has a very good football brain and can see a pass.
Now my question. How could I help him but also help the team, because when he plays its can be like playing with a man short?
