L has chosen a team! We had a lot of angst over the decision, but after getting some scoop from another mom, I think she is with the best possible coach for her. She really needs someone she can learn from. The club she's going with is definitely the most convenient for us. They have their own facility that's only 15 minutes away, as opposed to the other options that practice at different places all over the place. We don't know who else is on the team, but I don't think it matters much to her, as she didn't really know any of the girls anyway. She has several friends on her rec league volleyball team, but none of them are interested in playing at the club level.
So, we're now committed to volleyball in a big way -- financially, for one, but also timewise (they practice three times a week and generally attend 2 out-of-town tournaments a month.) Should be interesting!
