At this age it has nothing to do with being on the best team and everything to do with being on the right team. Playing time is the goal. Can get recruited at a role player.
Kids are leaving because of playing time at the "A" clubs, it has nothing to do with getting recruited to any top 10 D1 school. The owners of these clubs are a bunch of blow holes and will NOT get your kid recruited. My son is on a high level college team and the grades as well as showcases got him in.
Don't you need the owners/coaches recommendation to get invited to most of the good showcases? For instance, Maverick isn't a tryout, that's an invite you get off the rec of club owners. Also, the Under Armour showcase, the coaches making the selections are also coaching 2023 teams so clearly there will be a bias towards that club. The club landscape is a total racquet but part of the reason they wield so much power and drive all of us crazy is because they are the gatekeepers for recruiting.
