Taking him to watch high school soccer.


The high school game isn't nearly as technical as travel but the aggression level is high. Usually, depending where you live, a high school team is a mix of travel and house league kids. The house league kids make the team just on pure aggression. Some parents on my son's travel team swore by this method.

My son became extremely passive during his middle school years as many of the kids hit puberty before him. He became more aggressive, way too aggressive at times, as he grew and experienced more success. He also moved from mid-field to defensive where failure is not an option or the other team scores. I feel the move to defense had just as much an influence on his change in aggression as his growth spurt.
