Juggling Your Child’s Sports Schedule @hotelsforteams #Hotels4Teams #Ad

Sports Schedule

    This past weekend, things got a little hairy around here due to the fact that my son had games scheduled for both of the traveling teams that he is participating in this summer. Normally, we do a really good job of managing his sports schedule for both of his teams but, this time, we got jammed up with games on Saturday and Sunday.

Sports Schedule

    Although I realized that it would be tricky for my son to keep up with the demands of participating on two teams, I also know that the more he practices and plays, the better he’s going to become at playing basketball. As a result, we have worked out a system for juggling his busy sports schedule and it has helped to alleviate some of the stress associated with being somewhat overextended. Here are some of the things that have worked for us thus far:

  • Make sure you get a schedule of all the games that are planned for the season so you could plan ahead. Using Hotels4Teams allows you to book hotel accommodations as early as possible and to secure the closest and most affordable hotel rooms to the game’s venue.
  • Always maintain good communication with your child’s coach via text messages, e-mail, or phone calls to keep up with any scheduling changes.
  • Connect with other parents on the team in order to support each other with rides to the games should you experience a scheduling conflict.
  • Make sure your child gets enough sleep the night before a game and that they eat breakfast the morning before a game. A cranky young athlete makes for difficult travel to games.
  • Take care of yourself by eating meals on time and staying hydrated. You have to be at your best in order to keep up with taking your child to games and always being there to support them.

    We survived this past weekend’s hectic sports schedule despite struggling to find parking outside one of the venues where his games were held. Thankfully, we had planned ahead so things panned out almost entirely without a hitch and his team won all their games!

  1. I remember having to juggle two kids’ soccer schedules every fall season for a handful of years. I don’t have kids who play sports now, but it was pretty crazy sometimes during that season!

    We have three kids with three different schedules and it’s pretty bananas! I try to do a chart for back to school so everyone knows what they are doing and when!

  3. My son is still very young to join any team. This post prepares me ahead of time.

  4. I love how you support your kid with his sports. These sure are good tips on how to manage his schedule well, and I agree that the kid should get well enough sleep, and surely both of you needs to be eating well so you can both keep up with the sports schedule. Thanks for sharing this!

  5. I will be insanely curious to see what sports my future son is into. My husband and I are hoping golf, but you just never know!

  6. I haven’t had to do this, but many of my friends are sports kid parents. They say they feel like Uber and we joke about it. This is a great source to deal with the demands that they deal with for sure.

    The struggle is real. It’s just so hard to juggle through our daily tasks as moms plus the fact that we have to be present at our kid’s activities. Thanks for this useful tip.

  8. I like the way you explained things. Keep inspiring.

  9. Ohhhhh I’m looking forward to watch my boys play sports! We have 4 boys and my husband is a professional athlete so we have a sports house! I am alittle nervous about the planning since they are all 2 years apart! Thanks for the tips.

  10. My son is just getting into sports and trying out for a few travel teams… this is so timely for me! thanks!

    My kids are to young to attend in any sports team and this post of yours will be a great guide for me in the future.

  12. All great tips. I like to have a big calendar in my kitchen with all the dates and times.

  13. Sports schedules can be pretty crazy. Especially if you have multiple kids in multiple sports!

  14. It’s so tough to juggle the kids various activities. Hotels4Teams seems like a great way to plan your trips!

  15. This sounds like an awesome service! My daughter is on a competitive rock climbing team and we have her competition schedule well in advance for each season. This season we are headed to NM, TX and maybe OR!

  16. These are good tips, even though having children is still far off for me I’m sure I can tailor these tips to suit my current needs.
