Right On "justanotherguy"1.) Fun 2.) At 14u+ because a college coach will be at a certain event and your team isn't.
This is a good point.Well if you play at the higher levels you just can't go and play for whomever because you are sanctioned with your primary team. Coaches don't own the players but they do own their rights (they have to be released from a sanctioned team) . If it's a showcase tournament then it's no issue obviously.
because you have to be enrolled at the school and in good academic standing pretty much you cannot "guest" in HS. this is why colleges and HS generally carry significantly larger rosters than TB.Why don't colleges allow teams to pick up players? Why doesn't every girl just play for whatever team every weekend?
rec team DD played on did not mean nothing to her, she wanted to play with friends from school, and also frankly DD wanted to shut up some girls in school, who play in a "travel league" that is glorified rec ball (really just rec ball without drafts, geographic constraints, or playing time rules of rec ball, basically snob rec ball, they still have run limits, points in standings for a loss, etc.). when DD would try to talk to them about the tournaments she played in, because no one else in school plays at that level, they dismissed whatever she said because they have no idea what she is talking about. rec ball also taught her better patience in the box, CUs were killing her in TB.If your dd plays travel ball why on earth would she play rec ball? All that is going to do is mess her timing and rhythm up. After all you left rec ball because dd's skills were beyond that level why go back to it? All I am trying to say is why take the chance when the team you sub for means nothing to you
