Well we were considered "GAP" kids. Caught in the middle of the 10U Mandate. We took a year off and she's been playing these kids for the last 4 months, and FEASTING on them. She is not that good. Another dad told me don't waste my time, you haven't heard of these kids. They cannot play, and they have huge flaws. We went from 2000+ to ~200 National, ~400+ to 30 in florida. We played an event in Florida and beat the #5,#3,#1 seeds losing 3 games. All these kids have been winning events but against their 10U counter parts. These kids were playing 10U for a while. I figured maybe it was a fluke, So we went to Team ZONALs and played supposidly the best 10U graduates, and lost 5 games in 3 matches. These kids cannot move, judge pace, change direction, hit on the run, scramble... They can hit the hell out of slow ball headed right to them. So from my OWN eyes, I see a new issue for you Coaches, do you start at STEP 1? As I said on the FORUM before they closed the Jr FORUM, WHERE is the transition from Green to Yellow. It isn't as simple as GO PLAY! Better for me as my daughter jus turned 11 I can count on a Top 20 G12s National ranking thanks to 10U.
