The Life Of A Hockey Dad And Player

from Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post,

“I get home from practice at 1:30,” (Mike) Knuble said, recounting a typical weekday afternoon during hockey season. “The kids are out of school at 3. We try to do some homework from 3 to 4. We’re in the car around 4:15 and we’re back here until 7, 7:30.

“Eating healthy,” he added, “takes some planning.”

Knuble’s schedule can get hectic. But thanks to Megan, his high-energy, ultra-organized wife, a dry-erase board and a carefully choreographed network of carpools, everyone ends up where they’re supposed to be, even when he’s on the road with the Capitals.

On the meticulously detailed white board, each family member’s daily schedule is color-coded in dry erase marker. Cole’s events are in blue. Cam’s are green. Anna, the Knubles’ soccer- and lacrosse-playing 10-year-old daughter, is pink. Mike and Megan’s schedules are in black. Times are noted. So are driving responsibilities and, in some cases, addresses for away games.
