With being a basketball mom comes traveling on special days - holidays, birthdays, and Spring and Summer Break. There is hardly any time to actually plan a family vacation. Depending on where basketball tournaments take place, I always make a vacation out of it. I make a separate itinerary to get away, whether it’s to the beach, Disney Land, or checking out restaurants I researched. It’s a great idea to plan to stay an extra day or so after a tournament to get in that fun, family time and rest that the entire family needs after being on the road and spending countless hours in the gym. Make the best of your upcoming basketball trip. Life is all about about balance, and it’s vital that our student-athletes work hard and play hard as well.
