Is Your Child Ready for Travel/Select Sports?

The good people at League Network offered four criteria for parents to evaluate in determining if their child is ready for travel/select sports.  Although the Hustle & Attitude philosophy is geared towards recreational sports, there is often a progression from recreational teams to travel / select teams and opportunity for overlap in the coaching philosophies.  I think their recommendations are solid.  I particularly like the emphasis on education and determining whether your child is doing well academically.  This recommendation recognizes that children are more likely to see long term benefit from a solid education than from sports (think the ever-increasing search for scholarships).
