I am not a great youth soccer mind, but some of the people I have spoken with who are involved mentioned that soccer is kind of a “rich” kids sport. Soccer is one of those sports where it should be very inexpensive to play, but with traveling teams and camps, it can be quite expensive. This limits the pool of players who end up being a part of youth programs.

Here is an article from 2016 that is pretty interesting.
