    I used to take DS to swimming lessons which was $10 per week. Kindergym I think was only a couple of dollars per session.

    He's in school now and goes to weekly active sports after school, at the school, and that is free. After school care is $18 per day though.

    Share a book you're in Darwin aren't you? Have you tried Corrugated Iron for the dance classes? They're supposed to be awesome and really easy going, not competitive performance and money based

    Swimming $18 per lesson

    DD

    Swimming $18 per lesson

    Aprox $342 per month. Swimming is a MUST DO in our house and they can pick one other thing.

    Having kids is expensive.

    I just worked it out and I spend over $120 per WEEK on activities. That is for 5 activities a week though and one is very expensive. 2 are finishing soon though.

    Ds does swimming which is 140 for a term once a week.

    He also has just started tennis which is 165 for ten weeks.

    We have a rule in our house that if you decide to do an activity you must complete one terms worth and then if you decide you don't like it you can quit.

    I was very lucky as I got DS a lifetime membership to his karate club (they had a special offer when they were moving dojo) ...it cost me $3000...BUT, it means he can stay there for life with no fees! We got it 3 years ago, so are already on "free time"). That said, he goes in tournaments ...which cost me about $60 a go (prob 6-8 per year), uniforms of about $100-200 per year (if he would stop growing it would be awesome) and gradings of $40 4 times a year lol He says he wants to compete in the world karate cup...and is so dedicated. He goes 5-6 days a week (by choice).

    He also does gymnastics of $130 per term

    He used to do swimming but it was just impossible with my DD...he'll go back next year once she is a little older.

    DD going to start kinder gym when she turns 2 in September...and goes to playgroup which is $3 a week when we can make it.

    Both DSs do

    Auskick (AFL) $50 each for the season (winter months)

    Swimming $150 a term each

    Little Athletics $40 a season (summer) each (I can't believe some of you pay over $100 for Little Aths!!)

    DS1 is going to start basketball which I think is around $50 for the season

    So compared to some activities I don't think it's very expensive really, I know my girlfriends with DDs who do dancing and gymnastics those seem to be the really expensive sports!
