We're fortunate to have a variety of sports teams in the
Tri-Cities with Fever Football, Tri-Cities Dust Devils and
American's Hockey. It costs a great deal less to attend a local
sports team than to pay for travel and accommodations for a
Seahawks game (not to mention ticket prices) but there are also
other ways you can expose your kids to community events. Even if
you don't have teenagers in high school sports, Friday Night
Football games can be a fun family outing to teach sportsmanship
while enjoying all the fanfare of a major team.
Nachos and hotdogs are affordable and fun to enjoy while your
kids learn the game with great seats and easy access to the exit
signs if they get fussy. Try taking your child to a sports team of
a family friend with a high school student playing on the field, or
even to the school they will eventually attend.
It's a wonderful opportunity to build their interest and gauge
whether they're ready for a long trip to a major city. If high
school sports keep them engaged, move them to the next level with
minor league sports to ensure the entire family gets the most bang
for their hard-earned buck!
