Hi, New to this site but love all the info. Need some advice. I have a 2020 late bloomer and trying to nail down plans for summer 2019. He’s played the last 2 years for a big select organization here in Dallas on a mid level 16U team since tryouts were last year. Good team won a regional PG event and plays in PG BCS and local regional tourneys. But no commits or players with big skills to draw attention.
He just got back from PG Showcase posted really good pre-season numbers and should keep improving since he’s just filling out. We are going to be reaching out to some D1s and JUCOs.

We play at a 5A school but coach is new w limited connections. Same for travel coaches unless we get in front of main owner
For next summer are we better off not playing travel ball and just working on his skill development (strength training, hitting, pitching, fielding) to hit 90 plus and next level and just focus on college camps and Showcases?
Or play travel ball on mid level team crowded roster and trying to squeeze in skill work in the small amount of free time left?
Do 17U tourneys draw more coaches/scouts?
It’s a time and $ issue we want to keep our jobs and saving for college. Not sure there’s time for both. Thanks!
