My 6 year old just started peewee football, and he's scheduled for 10 hrs of practice each week so far. I'm hoping it'll change when school starts, but right now, it seems like a LOT. Knowing my boy, he's going to burn out on this and dread going pretty quickly at this rate. I want him to be excited to go and if he loves it, I'm in... but I'll be really interested to see how he feels after these first couple of weeks.
This is new ground for me... they keep adding more and more commitments to the calendar and usually with just a day or two's notice. Really worried about how it's going to go when I add homework and his sister's swim team into the mix.
Any words of wisdom for me? Is this normal, does it settle into a groove eventually? Or can I just expect to be owned by the youth football league for the next 2 months?
