This came as a complete surprise to us as he was trying out at a highschool tryout session (only for the experience), before next season's official tryouts that are age specific.
Owner of the club asked him to play. Tanner said yes.
The Junior Olympics is in Houston, TX the last week of June/first week of July. Our family has no debt except my student loans. We don't have the money to pay for Tanner to go.
$900 club fees and tournaments leading to the J.O.'s
$500 Junior Olympics
$250 food at J.O.'s
$ 50 food and taxi money to the hotel and back to the airport
These are required amounts, non negotiable.
The team will have parent chaperones that will be with him the entire time, 24 hours a day. We won't be there to watch him, again, for financial reasons.
This is overwhelming for us as parents, but also know for him...it is an opportunity of a lifetime we would like for him to learn and grow in. His team that has been playing together for 8 months has welcomed Tanner from day one (last week). Several club coaches at Legacy have told me how well he is doing. This is humbling as a dad who wants the best for his son.
