There are many 10-12 kids that take 200+ privates a year. That's a crazy number to me.
If 10-12 kids play 24 tournaments a year, they do not have a periodization at all.
200+ privates for 10-12 yo???? It guarantees nothing anyway.
Parents just want to buy feeling that they do "everything" for their kid.
