No one likes anyone leaving once tryouts are over! But there are reasons & it does happen. It happens often after fall ball. If your reasons for leaving is the team overall is more ahead of the curve then your DD presently is - then all will understand. Maybe the commitment your DD has isn't the same as others on the team. A coach would much rather have a girl leave in October/early November, then to find out she is unhappy & quit later into winter or even Spring. Like it or not, in a few weeks, there will be many players looking for new teams. Happens every year. There are those who's parents are never satisfied no matter what - believe coaches know who they are! But there will be those who are on teams at a little higher level than they are ready for. And there are those who after a couple of months realizes they are on teams not going to challenge them. I have experienced it all. But if everyone is honest, it should work out for the best for ALL involved. This time is much better than doing something in the Spring & leaving others out in the cold. My 2 cents!
