: I feel like club ball is becoming more important than playing for your high school team. Is that true? If so, why?
For most kids, the answer is no. They will play out their high school career and that will be it. They can certainly get better by playing club, but they play for their school to be on the team, play with friends, be a part of the school community.
For kids wanting to play in college, in most cases it's almost the opposite. All the exposure (98% of the time) comes from club/travel ball. High School ball, while still filling the roles mentioned above, just keeps these higher level players sharp and improving since they are practicing every day.
But the trend is definitely switching to the club/travel side, just as it is in soccer and volleyball.
