On this Part II episode, we chat all things sports with sports mom extraordinaire, Meredith, better known on social media as The Volleyball Mom. Meredith shares what her family’s commitment to sports looks like, how they balance it, and how she finds humor in it all.
This week we are looking at listener responses to our Instagram polls about the sports life balance in your household. We’ll take a look at the average hourly commitment per week, the average cost for youth sports, and how families are making room for overwhelming sports schedules in their lives.
Meet Meredith, an Art Teacher and mom of two with a hilarious TikTok page devoted to laughing her way through youth sports. With a relatable sense of humor and a love for sports, she creates videos that poke fun at the lighter side of kids’ sports and also give valuable tips for parents and athletes, earning her a dedicated following.
In her free time, Meredith enjoys watching her own kids play sports, cheering them on from the sidelines with enthusiasm and pride. She believes that sports are essential for building teamwork, confidence, and discipline in children, and loves seeing her kids grow and develop through these activities.
