Dad by Dawn has a solid list of local sports worth checking out since they’re cheap compared to professional sporting events:
Great stuff. I’d add most high school sports to the list. As I type this, I can see the Minnehaha Academy High School soccer team training for their upcoming season. You may have to pay for some sports, like football in Eden Prairie, but many are free with much better access than what you’ll get at a pro game.
And don’t forget competitions our our local roads such as biking, running, or inline skating. All can be exciting and they often have post-race events worth checking out.
What would you add?
