How to take a baby with you on the recruiting trail...

Carol Price-Torok, Associate Head Coach, University of Arkansas

  • Be organized with your travel.  Flight times, pit stops, etc.  I  have a lot of connections in Texas and Missouri, so I do a lot of recruiting there so my son can travel with me and have my friends and former teammates help.  I also have a great support system in Fayetteville, plus former players that are always looking for extra money on the weekends and a free fridge full of food! 
  • Bring help with you.  I am fortunate enough to be able to drive to a lot of qualifiers and watch great volleyball in our area.  I pay a babysitter to come with (i.e. our amazing manager!) It’s a free trip for her and great help for me. 
  • Expect the unexpected and go with the flow.  Even the best laid plans will go a rye with a baby.  Extra clothes, extra food, more breaks, longer breaks and more time in the gym.
  • Stay for the whole tournament. If you miss something you can re-evaluate your list and see them again.  You may want to stay in the gym until 8 pm, but if my son has had enough and is ready to go, it’s time to roll! 
  • Supportive staff and boss. My family is very important to me and making sure my boss was supportive of that was key when I was planning my family. 
  • Get your babies in the gym and on the road early.  The more they do it the more routine it is.  My son sleeps through whistles and cheering like they are lullabies and can entertain himself for up to 30 minutes.  I realize I am extremely lucky that he is flexible but I think he is a product of his surrounding and it is what he is used to.
