How do they know they will be equal? Did they have one big tryout and then try and divide the teams up evenly? Doesn't sound like it. That said, does it really matter? If you are happy with the team your DD is on that is all that matters, in particular at the 10U level. In my DD's org, they have 3 10U teams. One team, my DD's team has been with the org for 3 years (my DD joined last year) and is an 08 (second year 10U) team. There is also another 08 team which was just started last spring and an 09 team. We have played each of these teams in tournaments. The other 08 team isn't very good at the moment but I see them in the facility working hard all the time and the kids seem to be having fun. At the end of the day, the more younger age group teams the org has, the more they can be used to subsidize the older teams which give the org the publicity they need...The only issue becomes a matter of space for practice time. The org just added another indoor practice facility so they at least recognize that if they are going to have a bunch of teams at every age group they are going to need to pony up some cash to make space available.DD was just accepted onto a travel ball team with a well established organization. That organization is starting up a second 10u team in the same area. They have said that the two teams will be equal rather than one team being an A/B team and the other team being a C team. Is this pretty common? How does it work if both teams are doing the same tournaments? Is there anything else I should be concerned about?

Edit: As a sidenote, see if you can get buddy buddy with the Org head. Over the past year I have chatted him up a bunch and as a result he has given me the key code to the indoor facility so we can use it whenever we want!!!
