This was a great article written in the Chicago Tribune about the rising cost and travel of youth sports. It did a great job of pointing out the major issues that face families on an everyday basis. There are more and more travel teams out there today that have a high price tag with a great deal of travel. Some of these teams cost up to $1,500 before travel expenses, and that is just the cost for one child, what if you have two children on travel teams? It is leading to families having to make tough choices about whether their children can participate on these teams.
