In Reply to: College team camp for a 5th grader? posted by bball dad on May 23, 2018 at 16:14:33:
: I no longer live in SoCal but I had a question I would like to pose to everyone. My daughter is currently a 5th grader who plays with a boys 5th and 6th grade club team. She is well above average for her grade but on the small size at 5'1".
: She went to the local a girls camp put on by the local powerhouse private high school. The coach has made no secret that her to attend her school when she gets to 9th grade. To that end she has her playing on her jv summer league amd now is asking for her to go to the local university team camp (p5 school). Is this a good idea? My daughter wants yo do it but her club coach is worried it may be a bit much and she may get targeted.
Move1: Quit current club team. Have her try out for all girls team. If she’s better than all 5th graders, have her tryout for the 6th grade team etc.
Move2: Keep all options open for high school. It will be nice to be recruited and potentially get a free ride to a private hs.
