Is Travel Ball a necessity?

D17 ·
Let's say a kid is on varsity his sophomore year and doesn't play much. Doesn't play travel ball in the summer but plays with his HS summer team. Then he breaks out and has a huge junior year, but does the same thing again next summer, not playing travel ball. What are the chances of this kid getting recruited? Is travel ball a must for being recruited nowadays?

I would have to say that this team is very well put together. They have an all around approach to the way they are handling this team and it shows in their practices and meetings. I'm excited to watch my kids play for this team this year and I hope we have a great year with many more to come. The team site is awesome, whoever did their website design did an amazing job.

It is legal. One of the first sports I saw it happening was volleyball with volunteer assistant coaches at the school also coaching club teams. The harder you look, the more you will see assistant coaches at colleges coaching club teams in the off-season.

Is there a link online to the section of ncaa rules? I've searched but no luck, maybe someone has it on hand. Wanting to see if it's legal as long as they're a volunteer, or not if it's paid.

@TheOldBallGame I would rephrase your question to say "show me where in the rule book is says it is illegal?" I don't mean to be confrontational, but rules can't cover every what if, even rule books as big as the NCAA's. I would say, show the rule that says it is illegal. To reinforce the fact it is not illegal, look at the volleyball coaches at Stanford (I am using volleyball because this is where it has been happening the longest). Both the paid Assistant Coach Jason Mansfield and...

I know at least one assistant at a D3 school, that coaced a travel team. It was one of the better known in the state. He gave it up this last summer to spend time recruiting for his college.

Here's a copy of the Division II rule regarding employment of HS coaches. While it doesn't specifically address travel ball coaches, it's certainly OK for them if it's OK for a HS coach.

In sports other than basketball, an institution’s coach may be involved as a participant or in instructional or coaching activities in the same sport for a local sports club or organization located in the institution’s home community, provided all prospective student-athletes participating in said activities are legal residents of the area (within a 100-mile radius of the institution).

Welcome to the site. You'll find a lot of help here from people who have already been through this, some several times. We're in the middle of the process for the first time with our 2017 son. In his case, I don't know that travel ball is a must, but the kid has to play in settings where coaches will be there to see him. For us that means targeting a few showcases and, if interest is demonstrated, some specific college camps. I suspect if my son had a chance, or the will, to join a good...

As my son is entering his junior year I am of the opinion that showcases and travel ball that targets showcases are a good avenue to get noticed by college scouts. My son attended a Complete Showcase in Houston a few months ago and there were 39 college coaches from D1 to NAIA. Another avenue is to make small clips of a player batting, pitching, catching, hitting and email college coaches directly. This is the cheapest way to go obviously. I know a local kid that was recruited to a large D1...

Depends. He has to be seen at some point by someone (college coach) who gives yes to him playing at the next level. So if the HS he goes to is a powerhouse that has lots of boys go to college then he might be seen at HS games, but generally college coaches don't go to random HS games. They are in season and are only going to the ones where they have a specific interest. If he has incredibly dominate tools of some sort (speed running, velocity as a pitcher, hitting with power) then maybe. But...

I never thought I'd see this title for a thread on here. Kudos! Its a great question that shoulda been asked before...just don't recall ever seeing it. Usually, its the opposite, 'Is HS ball a necessity?' My short answer is 'no, not a necessity' but in general its a good idea. Our older son was gonna get recruited whether he played travel ball or not, but it sure increased his opportunities. Our younger son was gonna get recruited by at least someone local, but travel ball together with...

Boy, is this a loaded question! but a good one as Justbaseball said. Whether it's a necessity or not depends on a lot of things- does your son know where he wants to go? how long is his list? Does he want to stay local or does he want to expand his geography? How connected is his HS coach and does he promote his players? I can tell you in our case, travel ball helped tremendously. We rarely see a college coach at our regular season games, we are a 'northern' area, and our HS season is only...

Getting the best exposure for the least amount of money/effort is to compete against the highest level of competition. Kids from small schools often get recruited by coaches/scouts coming out to see the opposing team. Travel or HS, if your team doesn't compete against good competition, there won't be anyone at the games to find out who your kid is. That's the athletic director's job to schedule games against big schools. And if the team or your kid is able to play in tournaments, he'll most...

I agree with the above posts on exposure through travel ball, but they all assume the player is already "good enough" for the exposure? How do most kids get "good enough"? They play travel ball. From a young age.

Here's the thing on travel ball. If you want to play in college you need to find a few travel teams and do some homework. Find out where they get their other players, are they a local travel team or a national team. Talk to other parents and coaches in your area the teams are not hard to find. Then go talk to the travel team coaches and request a try-out. See where you stack up? Are you better of playing for travel team A or travel team B or travel team C ? Because you need to make sure you...

Also the problem with the OP idea , of breaking out is so subjective it's no help to the player. IF money is an issue most travel teams have a little set aside to help players in need... especially if you throw 90 or hit 400 foot shots I have never seen a travel team or travel org turn down a player because he could not afford it.
