Behavior Reference: A Priori Reasoning

A priori reasoning is a fancy way of describing reasoning based on theoretical deduction rather than empirical observation.

Let's do our best to move away from a priori presuppositions in our youth soccer environment.

Allow me offer a few examples.

Parent:

"My son can play division one soccer. I have not been to a division one game or training session in a long time, but I played division three. I know enough to know that my son has what it takes to play division one."

Player:

"I watch professional soccer games on television. At the highest level, they are good, but I am good enough to play for a bottom half team in France or Germany".

Parent:

"My son is not playing consistently, the coach has no idea what he is doing. He has it out for my son."

Coach:

"You are not tall or physically strong, you can't be successful at central defender. Even though you want to play there, and we don't have a designated player for that position, I don't think you will have success there."
