Well, as a person who just made her first payment for travel soccer, I can tell you that I definitely have mixed feelings about spending the money, in the grand scheme of things. I have no delusions of college scholarships for sports, and really for a non-football/basketball player the ROI is non-existent. However, he enjoys it so much that I think in the long run it will be worth it. When I think about how much money my parents spent on instruments and music lessons…and I haven’t played a note in 13 years. But it was a great experience. So. There’s that.
