It's certainly a world of it's own . . . did it with my daughter for . .

six years beginning in 12U. After she finished her playing career she coached D1 ball for four years. She then recruited these tournaments. The travel ball coaches are the the real power in the sport steering players to their favorite collegiate programs. It's not unlike AAU basketball in that sense but likely more honest as there is seldom if ever any shoe money or other incentives for the coaches. It's going to be interesting to see if NIL dollars change anything in the sport.
