07 Player...12U or 14U team

What's on your mind?

Hi. My daughter is aging up next January (07 player) so realistically we would be looking for a 14u team to join in August. If we are ready to make the move to travel, am i better to look for a 12u team now, or have her tryout for a 14U team.

If she is 12u age eligible until January 2021 then have her play 12u. If you are just making the jump no reason to push it right out of the gate. Besides you may wind up on a team you like and they may make the move together

Agree, would have her start in 12U. if she is dominating her age group, then you could look at moving her up. I would look for a 2nd 12U team in case it is a good fit and they all move up together.

At 12u play age appropriate unless she's a beast. The maturity levels between the age groups is HUGE, a 14u team can have 05s playing on it. There are many many talented 12u teams here on HB looking for good players and I'm sure she can find one that's competitive enough.
