    DD is starting dancing in January which is around 180 per term. I also have her costume (tutu, jiffies and leotard) on top which will be around another 70.
    Then there's playgroup 50 a term.
    DS isn't currently doing outside sports but has done in the past and the most expensive was his soccer which cost 700 a season. I thought that was outrageous but saved and saved for it because he was/is so passionate about it.
    I'm also considering swimming for DD this year as she missed out on a spot for 3 year old kinder and I feel she'll get bored this year.

    Just letting everyone know, we have decided to pull the girls out. I have since received emails of other price increases that I just can't bring myself to pay. I have broken it to the girls and they took it really well and completely understood. I told them they can pick any sport they'd like to do, they decided to pick a different club that is 90% cheaper and back to swimming and ballet. I can take that

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.
    For me personally that is an insane amount of money. DD does dance which costs us 1.5k for the whole year plus uniform which might be another $200 max.
    For 18k a year you can get an investment property!

    Dd1 did gymnastics last year at a cost of over $300 per term, plus extra for competitions etc. We just couldn't afford it. She loves dancing so we looked into that this year. She is doing contemporary, $97 a term plus one off $27 enrollment fee and approx $100 for uniform, foot undies and knee pads. They also let us know when we enrolled that we need to budget $100-$120 for end of year performance costume. Its a lot but we have plenty of notice so its fine. I was really surprised at how cheap it is compared to gymnastics and she loves it a lot more.

    My eldest daughter does dancing. She does contemporary, hip hop, jazz and acro. It is costing me $515 a term this year. There is no registration or joining fee and uniform isn't compulsory. Jazz shoes cost me $50. Plus it will cost $120 for 3 costumes at the end of year dance concert. It is expensive but my daughter has tried basketball and oztag but she's just not into team sports so I'm happy that she likes something.

    All 3 of my kids do swimming lessons which costs me $50 week for all of them but this is an essential imo.

    My son does rugby league and it's free I paid $25 registration last year and that came with a team shirt and socks. I had to buy bought shorts for $20 but he will wear them again. Very cheap compared to dancing but I think the NRL must've covered the registration fees this year.

    My kids do swimming which is $17 per lesson each once a week.
    Dd also does dancing which is $25 enrolment fee plus $10 per lesson and approx 10 lessons per term similar to school terms. Thankfully the end of year concert they just hire the costume for $10.

    I want to find something for ds but might wait until next year as he hasn't asked to do anything. Am thinking of tennis.
