: : Had a strange situation come up recently.
: : My daughter (8th grade) plays for a club that isn't one of the "elite" clubs, but has stayed with it for 3 years. She's improved tremendously, loves to play, and has grown physically just in the last 6 months or so. She wants to play in high school and talks about college, but we're fairly realistic and just support her in what she wants to do and will just let things play out, as long as she stays on top of school.

Stop right there--you are already doing the right things!

As far as "exposure" goes, it would be good for her club to play in some viewing tournaments. They don't have to travel all over the nation to get viewed--especially in this age of online video exchange.

If your club practices and teaches, and you feel comfortable with the character of the coaches, then you are in the right place.

If your daughter is that good, she'll get spotted. I've been to a lot of DII, DII, NAIA, and JC games over the years--I haven't seen many, if any--DI caliber players who were there because they were overlooked.
