Is your youth sports schedule as crazy as ours. I know we're not alone. Share your craziness here.
At the beginning of last year, I wondered how many official youth sports games my kids would participate in during the 2010. It was actually the impetus for this blog. They played in 225 games last year.
At the beginning of this year, I wondered how many practices my kids would participate in to prepare for all of the games the would play during 2011. Here are the astonishing numbers to date for this calendar year.
Today is August 15th or the 227th day of 2011. My two kids ages 10 (girl) and 14 (boy) have participated in the following schedule.
- 85 Basketball Games
- 12 Volleyball Games
- 32 Soccer Games
- 61 Baseball Games
- 1 Golf Matches - Started today.
- 191 Total Games
- 111 Total practices for all of the above.
- 302 scheduled events or 1.3 events per day.
- Over 10,000 miles traveled for games in 6 states.
- Over $9,000 spent
The Main Point
We're nuts. And we are not alone.
Share your insane schedule with my audience.
