Basically, how do you manage?
I am currently trying to get my son into one of the better hockey programs in my area, but when I start hearing about all the traveling AAA teams do I don't know if I could ever manage if he got into a AAA team.
Hope that worked out for you and your son.
Maybe you've found this out by now but here's my 2 cents on coping / travel:
- combine forces & share expenses - lots of like-minded folks around
- sacrifices in other areas of life (tough at first)
- make travel trips 'holiday trips' if to a nice location
- if your player is seen as quite talented, competetive programs (spring hockey) will negotiate a better deal - think like an agent!
Great tag-line - came true today, buhbye Fonzie!
