Charon, when you have to go over 100km in two different directions you may see it different, its hard enough to do as it is... but hey your BIGGER picture is a LOT different than mine.
I to had one div 1, and a div 2 child as well at one stage. It was very hard to get them to their games, and harder not to watch one or the other each week. but I excepted that is how it is when you are not at the top of your game. With HARD work they have both made div 1 now.. Thought there should be a pay off for achieving the top level, hence why you aim to get there.
I am traveling in the first place, not because I have a lots of time on my hands, or money to waste, but because my kids show lots of talent in this sport, but basketball SA is making it much harder now. This is the basketball end they should be looking after and helping,.. the ones trying to,.. or actually making it to the top level.
I probably wouldn't care either if I just lived a few minutes up the road from the Stadium, as you may do. or had one kids that was good at this.
Some of us parents have to make much greater sacrifices than others, personally and financially just to get our kids to the game each week.
Until now I have never whined about it, but I knew where we had to aim to make our life in this sport easier, now its got new programming and I am back to where we started.
Or I guess just go choose another sport that cares about families, as you no doubt would be thinking, as you play a violin for me.(NOT) lol ,..because this is not your problem blah blah blah..enough said
Thats why some may have to leave Charon. Or one child may unfairly have to drop out.
