We are coming out of 2 years of travel. One year 12u, one year 14u and 15u. Our 03 DD is highly competitive, has a big heart full of desire for the game and like most girls, thrives on the support, love and competitive drive of her teammates. Her competitiveness carries over into all other sports and school in being a straight A student thus far. She has a great bat and strong arm. We have found in these tryouts she has 'lessen' her strength of throw a) due to nerves b) it's just not the same when your in game mode for a throw down, and we are in Volleyball but this is still new and a learning curve in this tryout process. We are searching for an organization that she can build on. This is our first in going through multiple tryouts and it's pretty stressful. We have 2 solid offers, one that has ask for a return second look also asking to hold off on decision until second look and we still have one other tryout on our list of interest. 1) I feel bad for the waiting game but understand it needs to be a process. We are finding in 14U many are starting over with new teams or big majority needing to fill roster. Our DD will only have this year left in 14U and I'm confident in her skill set that if we find the right fit, that organization will want to keep her. Again, we are not in the market just to find a team. I would love input on those who are seasoned in the travel arena what are your key things you look at in an organization? Our DD is interested in playing college ball, so that tells us we should look at A organizations, correct? Or does that not really matter? Colleges look at H.S. I know, and travel is great learning and experience. Do we look at their longevity? What if an organization has changed hands recently or is only a few years old? Do we look at records? Do you look at tournaments? Most are telling us they play 2 fall tournaments and 6-8 in season with one or two of those being 'showcase'. We can view past records all day long but again, not sure of importance since those records are of girls who are moving up not the team we would be joining. I appreciate any advise you can give. It's crunch time and we want to do what is in her best interest to help her strive to higher heights in playing the game.
