Responsibility and Athleticism Can Go Hand in Hand
Most athletic teams have fundraisers to offset the sports cost for individual players and families. Most sporting parents know what this is all about – parents end up paying for whatever the fundraising product/service is, and then the parents go around and harangue family and co-workers to help out their child. This scenario is a common occurrence as it eliminates the burden of reminding your child over and over again of the deadline and their responsibility.
Team SNAP shares a parent’s decision to incorporate responsibility in their child, and hand ownership for fundraising for the team to their child. Though difficult in the beginning, every one wins in the end. Parents give your child the chance to truly revel in their accomplishments on and off the field.
