    Boy this is an old thread…

    I cut out fundraising for our travel teams after 15U. If a parent wanted to sell candy, candles, flowers etc they could but, running a team and managing team expenses and fundraising was too much so they had to do it on their own.

    In HS and College (like others have stated)…I had to get back into the wallet and DD had to go around selling pizza cards and local business coupon books with the other athletes playing all the other sports at C-Rain so the ladies ended up going all over trying to find an area that had not been saturated…

    Her college had mom and dad buy dance tickets @ $100 a pop it was fun and it covered food and drinks. We had to also work other functions in the Louisville area a couple times as well. The Monte Carlo night was a blast. Ahh College again…It worked out to be the same weekend Colerain played Louisville Trinity in football so it was a total weekend party on 4th street.

    The players had to work the Young Center etc so even after they get into a school there will always be expenses for mom and dad and thinge for the ladies to do...
    Wait till you furnish the dorm, TV, Mini fridge, microwave towels, baskets etc…

    After a year or so has gone by, I think I have grown to dislike fundraising even more, if that's possible! When my kids were younger I believed certain sports were notoriously expensive. But, for some reason I thought softball was one of the more affordable...if I only knew then, what I know now!
