"Do children learn sportsmanship if they are always losing to bigger, better schools?"
My 12 year old has played competitive soccer for 3 years, prior to that he played rec for 7 years.
He has played on a lower level team and on an A Team.
His sportmanship lessons were learned on the team that was always losing, his soccer skills have been learned through dedication, desire, determination and some talent.
If a child has a desire to become a professional athlete, they will become a professional athlete. Their training may have to augmented outside of the 'school' experience or 'club' experience...but if desire is there...it can happen.
