DD managed to garner a National Champioship ring and a D1 scholarship over the past 2 seasons playing for a relatively no-name team. Our total costs for team fees and travel expenses related to the team was about $3,000 per year (mainly hotel costs as team fees were under $1,000). A friend whose DD plays for one of the most well known teams in Ohio also earned a scholarship to a D1 (no ring though) revealed to me that they spent $10,000 EACH of the last 2 years, the bulk of that being spent one 1 trip to California. What is your budget for costs ONLY associated with team fees and travel costs at the 16U/18U level? What do you consider to be an insane amount of money to spend?
