    We don’t do anything. Usually they all hang out with whichever teammates are at their hotel, but since we have several options, most parents pick the hotel they have points at. I’m incredibly glad we don’t have team dinners, as my daughter is a picky celiac and it would be really difficult for her. People always have trouble understanding the difference between restaurants that have some gluten free food and restaurants that are safe for celiacs. Last thing we need is to have her vomiting all weekend

    Yes, our gym does this and the girls get excited when they get pinned!

    Take that a step further: if the team bonds, the parents will follow suit.

    We normally ask at before or at check in if there is a place we can bring food in to. Most (but not all) are quite accommodating. Our gym also does Day 1 nighttime pep rally for ALL teams from the gym to meet and regroup, so we normally have space already figured out for that as well.
