Well, I certainly wouldn't have had the money for thousands of dollars a month. Our traveling teams only traveled to various towns in NJ, and none required overnight stay, but I know that there are a lot more activities that require much larger investments. I can't pass a blanket judgement on them, but I'm not sure what they're doing if they are prioritizing sports over basic necessities. Putting everything on credit cards?
