DD is a freshman pitcher/starter on a *B* conference H.S. team that just finished its first winning season in six years (brag: in large part to her pitching and hitting 3rd, since she was the only freshman starter). The problem is that in our area, high school softball is a joke, her coach is clueless, and the level of play is one step up from rec ball (seriously).
On the other hand, DD is on a club that has developed more div I players in the area than any other, including getting a free ride to a freshman this year at my DD's #1 school.
DD just turned 14 in Jan, since she started school a year early, so she's the only H.S. player on her 14U team, although she did play up with the 16U team some in the fall.
H.S. practices take up a lot of time (practices 5 days/week, 2 hours/day plus games plus playoffs), and there were many conflicts with her club team workouts (3-4 days/week) and tournaments (3-4/month), although she tried to do both to the extent possible, but her grades were negatively impacted a bit (only so many hours in a week!).
To what extent to div I coaches look at H.S. accomplishments in areas where H.S. ball is a joke?
At this point we are contemplating DD just putting all her time into her club team who knows how to develop div I players and whose coach is connected to the div I coaches, since the H.S. coach has developed ZERO div I players.
