What are the real odds? Empty What are the real odds?

I hear people on the sidelines always chattering about a kid making the national team someday. Anybody every take the time to figure out the mathematical odds of a lake highlands dd making the national team? How many top leagues are there around the country? Its gotta be pretty bad given that national team represents a lot of age brackets too.

Close to zero.

If you look at this - note how many girls from Texas are on here - (one from here, one from Austin).  
It's a great goal to have, but, similar to becoming an astronaut, enjoy the journey and the work to get there, but don't let it crush you if it doesn't happen.  The older ages are similar in terms of numbers. 

You should have a pretty good idea at U13/14 if it's even a possibility. 

Think about this - North Texas is considered one of the top leagues in the country, the top of the top players from this area rarely make the national team (some have, but it's anything but consistent - unlike California, NJ, Ohio).  We do get scouted a lot here - so, that's a great thing, there are always opportunities to be seen by the national team, fortunately. 

Having seen Cali teams on the boys and girls side, they tend to be slightly better at the younger years (
The Cubs want to go to the World Series as well - costs nothing to dream, worth the effort to try to get there...but don't size that ring yet.

North Carolina always gets lots of people there because some people have connections.
  Seems like you have to know somebody there.  This ODP is a bunch of hot air and a waste of $.
There's a girl on the professional  league playing for Portland who came from Lake Highlands, was cut by Sting, went to Solar and earned a full scholarship to a big uni. She was also invited to try out for the national team.   Talk about hard work.
