    Default Options for Canadian teams

    Hi,

    My daughter is on a very good team that will be 12U next year and based in Eastern Canada.
    Our primary goals will targeting our provincial and national championship events.

    I find the number of sanctioning bodies in the US difficult to track and coordinate.
    Can any of you help to explain the proliferation of "World Series" or "Nationals" tournaments that are out there?
    How they rank, from both a competition and "fun' factor? Difficulty in qualifying?
    Any experience playing other teams from Canada?
    Assume we'd focus on playing in the NorthEast Region, from Maine to Ohio.

    I'd like to see our team tested. Don't wish to travel 6-8 hours to lose (or win) by 25-0 scores.

    Thanks

    In New England, I find USSSA is the most competitive. The weekend tourneys in Hartford, CT pull from New England, and NY teams, so the competition is strong. However, Nationals is in Maryland.

    ASA (now USA) is also very good and their Eastern Nationals is in Connecticut for 14's. You will find teams from all over New England and the midwest attending it and will be challenged for sure. Unfortunately, U12 you'd still need to travel to Virginia.
    PONY is also down in Virginia.
    Donít practice until you get it right. Practice until you canít get it wrong.

    I am not an expert on Canada, or Canadian teams, but I do have a friend who's DD is playing for the Canadian National Team due to holding dual citizenship. Anyway, my suggestion would be to come to the US to play as much as you can. Try to get to CO for July 4th tournaments and to CA for PGF at least once when the girls are 14-16.

    I don't know, I should write this in this thread or not. But is there any team in India?
