I received no product or compensation for this post. This post is in partnership with PR firm. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

Recognizing and giving back to parents who sacrifice weekend time for youth sports travel, came after the results of an Embassy Suites survey showing that parents travel an annual average of more than 1,000 miles to their kids’ away games and tournaments on the weekends and spend on average more than $1,400 per year.

•93% of parents surveyed have delayed or skipped buying something for themselves to pay for their child’s sports travel.

•92% are willing to forego a number of activities to facilitate their children’s sports travel such as: family vacations (36%), social functions and family gatherings (45%) or another child’s event (27%).

•64% of survey respondents report having taken time off of work in order to accommodate their child’s traveling sports team schedule.

Embassy Suites Hotels is holding an “All-Star Parents” Facebook contest to reward parents with their own “win” during the busy fall sports season. The all-suites, upper upscale hotel chain is looking for “All-Star Parents”. Visit the Embassy Suites Hotels Facebook page from now through October 7th to nominate a deserving mom or dad, tell what type of All-Star Parent profile they fit and why they deserve to win free stays at Embassy Suites Hotels for an entire team!
