Do your team research. All teams are not the same.
Parents need to stop complaining so much. The girls pick up on it and start complaining too, and that can damage their chances of making a good impression on coaches and recruiters.
Always strive to have your daughter play at the highest competition level for her that maintains fun in the game, with teammates that have similar end goals.
Teach your child to be a team player. Teach them that hard work and dedication is the key to success in life and in sports.
Parents need to fully commit as well. Have seen too many good committed players not get the support at home and they never fully realize their potential.
Watch travel ball team practices and games before committing.
Too often parents hold a child's talent back selecting a team with the most friends.
If your child is passionate about the game and is talented, encourage her to take chances on teams that will better herself.
Figure out what your child's goals are. Then judge her talent unbiased. This should help you decide what level of play/team she needs to be on.
Ask to be a guest player at a tournament or at a practice, or just simply watch different teams play their games.
Focus on developing kids as a whole, not just in the area of softball talent. Spend time focusing on character development first.
