So my 2022 had a pretty good summer with his showcase team. Team did well. PBR regional tourney finalist, PG 25 regional qualifier semis, and some regional tournament championships against known organizations' regional teams, etc. Beat some PG top 50 teams along the way.
Son had a PG all tournament mention. As stated before, son is very athletic but has slight build. Only kid on the team to play every inning of every game (CF) over the summer season.
And what's my question? Kid is signed up for recruiting service paid for by his club. All of the sudden he is getting camp invites up the wazoo. They all seem personalized but that is not to hard to accomplish with mail merge or whatever app the kids are using today.
Am I correct in my interpretation of the info on theses boards, that if the invite is from an assistant coach or the like, it's not something to be too excited about? The invites have run the gamut from D1 P5 to DIIIs I have never heard of. And might a HC or RC invite be a different story? What I have gleaned from my reading is that, while camps can be an important tool for schools, they are also predominantly a way to raise funds for the program and compensate assistants.
Does son need to reply if he is not able to attend (or not interested)? Between school and three fall showcase tourneys, there is really no time. I figure he just needs to work on getting bigger faster stronger in preparing for his sophomore season.
