In Arizona, club versus high school sports are strictly regulated and enforced.
Quite simply, once a student makes a schol team, regardless of the sport, they
can not practice or play with their club team until their final game is
concluded. It's not the hs coaches fault here, and many of us disagree with
this rule, but it is the rule and the penalties are harsh. Specifically, the
team will forfeit all games the student participated in and most painful for
the athlete he or she cannot participate in ANY hs sport for 1 year. I make it
a point to caution all my players and parents that this is the rule, like it or
not, and if not lobby to change it.

Here's the situation:
My daughter, a high school freshman, atteneded a meeting yesterday regarding
the 2000 school softball season. She and the other girls were informed by
the new coach that they would not be allowed to play or practice with a
tournament team during the school ball season.
My question: Is this typical in your area?
Thanks in advance,
