Traveling with kids can be a little daunting. The kids would definitely be excited at the prospect of playing and bonding with friends, but parents and coaches would have to mind all the logistics. Do not worry, we are here to give you some tips on how to have a fun and memorable sports-related travel with the kids:


1. Pack a lot of healthy snacks. You must remember that traveling teams usually have a hectic schedule and that might mean that the kids will be skipping lunch. And they simply cannot play at their best when they are hungry.


Leave the potato chips and other bags of junk food at home. Instead bring carrots, cheese, apples, nuts, and other healthier snacks. This way, the kids would have something to munch on even if you cannot stop for lunch or dinner.


2. Tell the kids to pack a travel kit. A travel kit should contain everything that they would need on the trip. That includes medicines, sunscreen, bug spray, water bottles, socks, game consoles, tablets, and yes even books to help while away the time. If you are traveling while school is still in, you should remind them to bring homework along.


Anticipate a lot of downtimes especially in long distance travel. While you can certainly screen a movie or play music on a sprinter van rental in New York City, it helps if the kids would have a book or their own tablets to keep them busy.


3. Prepare a code of conduct and explain them to the kids. Coaches would have made a list of acceptable behaviors on the trip. Know them and make sure that the kids know them. A code of conduct might also include precautions and a list of what not to do to make sure that the kids play at their best. For example, coaches might prohibit going out at night or swimming because these would leave the kids very tired.


4. Save with a sprinter van rental in New York City. Rather than going on separate cars, consider going on a sprinter van rental in New York City and save on the costs! You can split the cost among the number of kids who are going. Plus you get to save on fuel costs as well. That's a pretty good win for the environment. More than this, you will also save on parking. Large tournaments and popular sports centers also tend to charge parking fees, so you can also save on parking fees with us!


5. Lists! List down all the equipment that your kids need because you simply would not have the luxury of going back home when somebody forgets something.


6. Do not rely on your GPS. There are areas where you might not have reliable cell service. So make sure that you bring paper maps as well, just in case. Also when you get to your destination and you still have time, drive by the venue to make sure that you would not get lost going there.


7. Maximize your vacation. Tournaments might mean that you and the kids would have an extra day. Take this opportunity to visit local attractions. Bonus points if you can take the kids somewhere that is related to the sports that they are playing!


8. Save on hotel rooms. Most hotel rooms limit guests to a certain number. If you have a bigger team, you might need to rent more hotel rooms. You might be able to save by getting mini suites that could accommodate 8 to 10 people. Again, you can split the costs with other parents. Or you might want to try AirBnBs and rent out an entire apartment that would accommodate the entire team.
