do what is right for your family.
Plenty of regular school kids have played limited national schedules & gone on to play at some of the best college programs in the nation.
College coaches understand family travel concerns, but if your kid wins enough and has the grades , test scores, they will be noticed by all of the best colleges ( talking about best universities, ivy, NW, Vandy, Stanford, top D3's such as Wash U, Williams) coaches. Rankings are just a number, any good coach takes the rankings with a grain of salt and looks at the level of play, sportamanship, quality of wins not always quantity. Now, if you want your kid to be a pro, maybe a different story. Stay true to your education priority and your kid will end up at the right university .
