Growing up in Ridgefield, Chelsea Adams enjoyed participating in year-round sports and was excited to give her four children the same opportunity. She quickly learned that a lot has changed when it comes to team sports. Now, being part of a team isn’t just about being active, participating in friendly competition, and having fun. It often involves honing skills in a competitive environment, specializing in one sport from an early age, and spending years preparing oneself for a coveted spot on a high school or college team. More than that, though, it’s about money.
