    Travel Ball is Killing Rec Ball

    My daughter loves it too but she has to understand she can’t play for every team in town. If it was up to her she’d quit school mom and dad quit their jobs and do nothing but shuttle her from sporting event to sporting event. She has a lil brother too and he plays sports so he has to be able to...

    Travel Ball is Killing Rec Ball

    Yeah and I don’t mind it at the 14-18 age groups. By then kids know what they like what they want to concentrate on or if they just wanna play and have fun only. It’s the 6-12that is my issue elementary school kids should be able to play multiple rec sports without having to travel all over just...

    Travel Ball is Killing Rec Ball

    Well My wife and I have pretty much decided she’s too young for choosing which sports to give up so she gives up none. She’ll keep getting asked to play on this team and that team but she couldn’t play for em all even if we allowed it. So when she gets older and decides I like this sport or that...

    Yes 10u. No it’s not really fitting them. That’s the issue they can barely get enough girls to play. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Travel Ball is Killing Rec Ball

    I guess I’m still confused how 6.5% of hs players get to play in college then [emoji2373] hell maybe she’ll blossom at basketball where she can actually get recruited and keep growing who knows. Crap she may quit it all and take up knitting though she tells us she’s playing pro something and...

    Travel Ball is Killing Rec Ball

    My daughter didn’t mind rec basketball (I found it frustrating to watch though lol). Her teammates don’t have to be good just throw it towards the backboard and let her go to work. She played in a coed 10-12 year old league and at 10 led league in scoring and rebounding at 14.5 and 22 a game...

    Travel Ball is Killing Rec Ball

    I’m fully aware size and speed aren’t the only factors at no sport do they routinely choose the smaller athlete with the same skill set as a larger athlete except in horse racing. I don’t think travel should even exist until 14 and up but I know I’m rowing that boat alone. Her travel b-ball...

    Right. She had to choose a sport. Can’t play decent competition at both bc travel ball has ruined youth sports. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Travel Ball is Killing Rec Ball

    I’m just a dumb lineman. She’ll suck it up and chase balls in rec I guess she don’t know which one she wants to concentrate on yet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Travel Ball is Killing Rec Ball

    The statement alone shows you don’t know about offensive line play. Everyone in the trenches is big and strong technique wins every time. You have zero chance at survival though if you don’t have the size. The technique can be taught. Did they take a risk yup they risked I was teachable. Sent...

    Travel Ball is Killing Rec Ball

    Yep the really good ones want even more commitment. She plays travel basketball. It runs a couple months is reasonable and travel is 2 hours max. She plays in the rec league too and her school. The basketball rec league is a bigger joke than softball. They didn’t even have officials last year...

    Sounds like softball is out for my daughter then. That’s a shame. She’ll enjoy it through hs then. I’m not asking her to give up other sports she loves too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Travel Ball is Killing Rec Ball

    Yup I want her to have fun and play. We’ve been to a couple different practices. Sorry I ain’t paying what they want for that level. It’s glorified rec ball. Practice in the and play indoor in the winter regular travel season runs into school basketball. Ten year old shouldn’t have to give up...
