Mini-sode #5 The Mental Game of Travel Sports

What the hell did Meg and Casey get themselves into?

Meg and Casey share their newest journey: 10 year old travel softball (not extreme travel – just within an hour of their city) still, very involved. Like the whole entire weekend involved. Exhausted and exasperated they share the realization that travel sports – probably not for them.

Meg and Casey explore whether or not travel sports are healthy. Is it fair if you have other children? Should siblings have to spend their whole weekend traipsing around the sportsplex?

Some families seem to love it and make it work  – but at what cost?

Also, Meg shares how non-competitive she is and this makes it difficult for her to understand the taunting and purposeful yelling meant to distract the batters – this leads to a heated discussion as Casey tries to explain the mental aspects of competition. Casey claims he’s a “classy heckler” and that makes it ok.

Tell us your thoughts on travel sports!
