Snacks

When did the idea you had to have snacks for practice get started? I know I used it in cross country when we had practice at 9 a.m. on Saturday morning. I figured if I made the kids get up and work that early on their day off, it was up to me to give them a treat when practice was done. I usually went to Schmidt’s and bought some donuts and to Kroger for a gallon or two of milk. This seemed to satisfy them and practice on Saturday went very smoothly. For little kids the snacks usually are for after games or contests. Most of the time a parent or set of parents is scheduled to supply these snacks. I understand that there is a great debate today between healthy snacks and what we all like to think of as the good tasty snacks. This means, of course, that the healthy group brings bananas, apples, grapes, and even yogurt. My preference would be Rice Krispie treats or Little Debbie snacks! I understand that parent groups also take care of meals before high school contests. I would imagine spaghetti is the number one meal served. This practice is something that was not done when I was a head basketball coach. Of course, with track and cross country the time frame did not set itself up for any type of meal. We would leave right after school, so it was impossible to feed the team before they performed. Back when I was in high school, both the football and basketball teams ate after the contest at The Sherman House. Since Batesville was a predominantly Catholic community, this meant we ate a lot of fish on Friday nights. It was always nice when a game fell on Saturday so meat could be part of the after-game meal.
