Father of a 2026 here. Do you see more recruiting from your son playing with his HS team or from when he's playing club?
Club.....our HS coach helps a little but it’s almost all club.
and with private school, head coach as well.
Club, but depends on the club. Some of these clubs don’t have a network big enough and the ones that do, you better be a starter on the top team. Otherwise the recruiting falls on you.
Club year coaches are key from the experience with my son. Do they know the college coaches well? is your team at the right showcase tournaments playing top level? How committed are your coaches to making sure they go to bat for your kid vs. just looking at players are $ signs? Critical questions to ask and if you have this do not hop clubs. Hope this helps.
