Right now good ball players are signing up for their local rec teams for whatever reason, finances, inability to commit to a full summer schedule, a lack of travel ball or tourney knowledge, or simply a girls desire to play with her friends and classmates. This is 10u. I stand by my statement that there are teams at 10u rec that would beat teams in your top 10. Not all 10u rec teams are coached the same. Remember we all started somewhere. Im sure most of us and our daughters have been involved with rec teams, or maybe you and your daughters started playing travel at 5yo and won the t-ball world series. Not saying the best rec team could win a weekend tourney, just saying they could compete and win in single games.
