So after my previous post, I am convinced to bite the bullet and play in 12u with a 2007 team this season. We will definitely take our lumps, but we will focus on improvement and gaining experience.
Since we are just starting and still need players, what are the next steps to build the team. I have a decent idea on what to do, but I want to make sure that I am going the right direction, and since this forum is filled with people who have done it before, I value your opinions.
We are in an area that has a lot of TB teams, but none are based in our city. We have access to facilities (indoor/outdoor), and we have a great rec system, but no competitive teams in our age group. We were thinking of trying to find players from the rec league since we certainly know a lot of them are good enough to play with us. Is it a bad idea to try to keep it local before we expand our search for players?
Any help and advice is appreciated.
