Part 3
With tryouts now being done and teams are being made, I wanted to talk today about the importance of having the different levels of play, and why it is important to understand that your daughter doesn't always have to play on the A team to have a successful season.
First off, having the different divisions or levels of play in your association is very important and I believe a must! Not every girl learns at the same level or is born with the same abilities.
1.) It allows the coaches to be able to teach girls with the same abilities and same level of play at a much more consistent rate. It also keeps the girls attention span while not overwhelming others that are not up to that level of play.
