This weekend my daughter and I head off for her first out-of-state competition with her skating team. I have checked and rechecked our bags about a hundred times to make sure we have her skates and guards, and the special practice dresses for the whole team--it's my job to bring those on every trip. These are not things we can easily pick up along the way if we forget them!
Our Guide to Grandparents, Susan Adcox, has a great breakdown on travel teams on her site, which I've been using as we prepare. I'm sure I'll come back from this trip with lots more questions and ideas. I'll post some updates to Twitter and Facebook along the way, and would love to hear about your experiences with sports travel for your kids.
