The number in high school and middle school are up looking at the state tournament, and the national team numbers have been growing for the pass 3 to 4 years.
Last year, I believed they had almost 45 girls on the team.
I understand the issue of a dual team, but if they don't have the money, then that's what it is.
You have more than one program going and taking the girls to national level events and placing some even winning these events.
Make a proposal to the wswa board , chip in, and see where it goes.
Right now, it comes across like crying; we just had a group of ladies competing and placing.
I don't have the answer, but there is a membership meeting every summer show up and speak up.
this is not a job this is a suggestion.
I'm with you about growing the national teams period....
