Gap Year:good idea or no?

I am considering a gap year for my soon to be junior in high school son who plays soccer.  As a college level prof. for many years, I can deduce that he may not be ready to play college soccer right out of high school.  An in-between year to develop both academically and physically might be a better idea.   I have done some web brousing regarding Edu-kick and IMG in Bradenton, Florida.  There are most likely other programs that I do not know about.  Has anyone tried a gap year program for their child?  If so, how would you rate your experience?  Are there any other programs that you would recommend?  Thank you so much!
