    DH pays $29/week for unlimited access for his martial art, that's up to 3 hours a day, 6 days a week (only 4 days have structured classes). But he also has to pay a 10% cut of any payments he receives for fights domestically and 20% for international fights.

    Bargain! Who's that through?

    Ds done swimming..... $110/term, it was 9 weeks, 3 of those they called to say their heating system was broken so lessons were canceled. No one was offered refunds or extra lessons or compensation. There was 12 in the class (under 18mnths)

    Quite expensive! I haven't gone back since...am on the lookout for something but we are in a country town, and seems no sports are offered for under 5s really

    I hope they lose lots of business that's really unfair.

    DDs dance lessons are occasionally canceled or it falls on a public holiday. This term we missed out on 2 lessons and still have to pay for it. I'd love to go elsewhere but DD can be quite shy and she's settled where we are

    For my 4.5yo:

    $36/30 mins - private swimming lesson
    $10/30 mins - sports program held at daycare
    $15.50/30 mins - soccer (about to start)

    Nothing for my 8mo yet as his older brother is consuming all our financial resources, lol.

    Ds goes to gymnastics for 3hrs a week. That cost us just over $300 this term. We could have gone cheaper at the pcyc but the people and facilities are just so much better at his club.

    Sent from my pho....oh who am I kidding. It's rarely used as a phone
