Preparing for a Soccer Tournament

 

Parents whose children play the beautiful game need their own game plan when preparing for a tournament. Thinking ahead will make the weekend more enjoyable for you and successful for your child, and can save you money to boot.

Tournaments are expensive. In addition to the team registration fees, there can be hotel bills and restaurant expenses. And don’t forget water, energy drinks, and snacks. But you can keep expenses in check and optimize your child’s performance by planning ahead.

First off, prepare for injury. While tournament sponsors usually have people to deal with serious injuries, keep a small first aid kit for minor problems.

Include bandages, tape, gauze and a small pair of scissors, blister bandages (they provide more cushioning and stay in place on sweaty feet,) antiseptic, and locking plastic bags (to fill with ice if you need an ice pack.) It doesn’t hurt to keep a chemical ice pack in your kit as well. Another possible item is an emergency tooth saving kit. (Teeth that have been knocked out can also be kept in milk while the child is taken to an emergency facility.)
