CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – Perfect Game released its Final 2018 National Travel Team Rankings in the 13u through 17u age groups last week (final 18u rankings were released in September).

The rankings shed light on which national organizations are the most prolific in terms of entering multiple teams into every prominent PG tournament in all six age-groups if, in fact, that participation proves to be beneficial to the young players within that program.

What follows is a look at several programs from across the country that finished the 2018 summer and fall seasons with multiple teams slotted into the rankings. Please note that this exercise was not done to diminish the accomplishments of the dozens of other highly regarded and respected programs that also fielded competitive teams this year.
