I have received my daughters sporting packages for the coming year. My daughters are both under 10 years of age and only newly into the sport but quite good at it already. So between 1 Feb to 1st of April I have to pay out $5500. Is this to much? Would you spend this amount on sport at such a young age? For the whole 2016 year I have worked out it will cost at least $18000 including competition costs and trips away for it. My daughters love it but we are a 1 income family, I just don't know if I should sacrifice things for them to do a sport that wouldn't get them anywhere as an adult but don't want to break their heart either.
