I was watching an 11-12 All Star practice recently that ran about 2 and a half hours. A little structure could have knocked off at least 45 minutes. Some of the parents with travel ball experience were very frustrated. Does your DD play for a coach that brings a plan to practice every time? A 12-u team, we practice twice a week, about two hours per. One of our nearby elite teams practices less often because their players come from greater distances. They'll find a Saturday they're not playing and go almost all day, stopping to grill or picnic about the 2/3rds mark. What works, or doesn't, for your team and what would you do different?
