Like so many who know Brenda Michaud, and who have seen the passion, dedication and intensity she brings to her workouts and the diligence she brings to her diet and maintaining a healthy mindset, I was among those who looked at her Facebook post last summer in disbelief. I am guessing that …

With high school schedules being so limited, and competition so often being marginal, many parents believe that getting their young athlete on a travel team will serve them well on many levels. Ideally, the kids learn time-management skills, see better competition and quality coaching, and m…
