Youth Sport Teams Opting to Stay in Vacation Homes Vs Hotels

Youth sport tournaments are popular in most large US cities. Sports teams on the go now include everything from soccer to softball, volleyball to cheerleading. Team leaders and organizers often face the challenge of where to house their team. Unless reservations are made far in advance, hotels and motels are almost always booked. They also lack the youth-friendly accommodations that these events need for kids and teens to feel at home. All the more reason why youth sport organizers increasingly choose vacation homes for their teams to stay for any away activities, competitions and tournaments.

Close Proximity to Tournament Venues

Vacation homes are often just as conveniently located to tournament and sports venues as hotels and motels. For kids, teens and event leaders / organizers, being just minutes away from where events are held can be a key factor. Such homes are not only close to arenas, ball parks and convention centers, but they're also very often just minutes from major entertainment attractions that allow kids, teens and their charges to unwind.

There's No Place like Home

Tournament organizers and team managers are discovering that vacation homes can be very accommodating to youth sport teams. Many such homes feature kids / bunk rooms, two or three bunk beds and two trundles, which offer the extra convenience of allowing many kids to share the same bedroom. Some four-bedroom vacation homes can sleep as many as 16. And most have a sofa sleeper in the family room that sleeps an additional two.

Entertainment for Kids, Teens and their Charges

Many vacation homes are designed to keep kids, teens and their charges entertained, something they need after a day of physically and mentally challenging competition. These homes typically have smart TVs, action-packed gaming systems like X-Box, DVD players, Foosball, Netflix, and Wi-Fi access for smartphones, tablets and laptops. Such connectivity options also help keep everyone up to date on both local tournament activities and sports events throughout the world.

Pools, Spas and BBQs

After a busy day of tryouts and tough challenges, kids, teens and their charges need to unwind. Vacation homes let guests do something they usually can't do in a hotel or motel-prepare hot dogs, burgers or steaks on a BBQ in the privacy of their own backyard. No waiting for BBQs to be available or sharing yard space with strange hotel / motel guests. Each home usually includes a large outdoor dining table and chairs, plus a comfortable seating area. Most homes also have an in-ground, private, gated pool and a relaxing spa or hot tub. Here, adults can de-stress with their fellow charges while youth swim competitors can practice their techniques, again all in the privacy of people they know.

Three Square Meals

Staying in a vacation home lets guests enjoy healthy, economical meals for kids and teens – three times a day. Unlike hotels and motels, which offer inflexible menus, most vacation homes allow guests to prepare unique meals that fit their teams' health and taste preferences. Each home features fully equipped kitchens with stainless steel appliances (dishwasher, fridge, microwave and double oven), granite counters, and large breakfast bars. The kitchens also come with pots, pans, bakeware, cooking utensils, dishes, flatware, even kitchen towels and paper towels-just like home.

Economical Cleaning Services

Youth sports teams can be hard on clothes and uniforms. Hotel / motel laundry services can be very expensive for an entire team. Most vacation homes include a washing machine and dryer for economical in-home convenience. Cleaning up after kids and teens can also be a chore, which is why most homes also have available housekeeping services.

World Cup Soccer: Football That Unites The World

In every sporting event one can invariably find a player, a team, a nation, poised to become the next memorable story – a story that will survive the test of time and go down in history. The FIFA World Cup is unique, in that, every country can qualify. It is the only tournament that can unite the world with its common passion for the sport. It is a tournament where everyone celebrates, dances, and rejoices in the streets of their capitals, exulting in the spectacular feats of their players, their teams and their nation.

But what makes the World Cup particularly extraordinary is the national pride that it inspires, especially for the first time qualifiers. Since the first tentative World Cup in Uruguay in 1930, World Cup history was not only about the winner or winning the title, but about the stories. World Cup history resonates with the back-stories that echo through time – of players, teams and nations that surprised the world by achieving the unexpected. From the poignant moments of the underdogs and the worlds Cinderella teams, to the birth of legends and the brilliance of the football giants – the World Cup brings joy to every nation. It is about the stories of players, teams and nations taking it to the highest levels; the stories about emotions and pride that unites the world.

At 2006 FIFA World Cup, we welcome the heavy favorites – from the European continent and all the way to the South American continent. For these giants, winning is everything. In their spirit is held the promise of thrilling showdowns, individual feats of brilliance and the majestic harmony in motion of a team united in its quest for the world’s most coveted prize in football. Will the European contenders – Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Netherlands, France, and England have the firepower to overcome the South American power forces from Brazil and Argentina, or will the world be dancing to the samba beat again this year?

What about the other European contenders, the lesser known South American teams, or the North American and Central American zone teams? Or better yet, the Australians? Let’s not overlook the African continent! Will the trophy finally make its first trip south of the Mediterranean Sea? For that matter, even the Asian continent and their desire to bring Asian football to new international acclaim should be considered.

At the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, we hope to see these underdogs, long shots, and Cinderella teams. There is always something special about the underdogs for winning is not everything to them. Simply by qualifying to walk onto the world stage, they have realized their goals and sparked the hopes of their nation. Armed with this impossible hope, win or lose, they are there to defend their national pride, and valiantly defend it they will, sometimes to the very chagrin and amazement of disbelieving onlookers.
