    Default Extra curricular activities how much per child per week?

    As the title suggests how much per week?
    We already do a program at kindy which is $11 a week, we're looking at another one which will be $18 or so ( meaning just under $30 a week for 1 child).

    I currently have DS1 at kindy and just 2 sports a week at present so it's around $35 a week. But we have been looking at adding one more I don't know the cost but our activities so far have been approx $15-18 a session each.

    DS2 (4 months old) will start swimming soon too and that's $18 a week, sports are a killer financially, but I think they're so crucial.

    Growing up my parents struggled financially but I did swimming, ballet and tennis every week from kindy and I really appreciated that they sent me.

    All together my girls cost around $180 a week for sports. 9 year old does more so she's takes up $70 a week from that amount, $50 DD7, $30 each for DD6&DD4. That's between swimming, dance and gymnastics.

    Ds and dd do swimming which is $42 a week for both of them and dd also does joey scouts and because I'm a leader it is $200 a year for me (our group chooses to subsidise some of the fees for leaders children as a thank you). Then she has camps on top of that but they aren't much $20-$30ish besides the bigger events which are more expensive.

    She wants to gymnastics as well but I don't think we have the time and at this point in time and more money on extra curricular activities just isn't possible.

    DDs dance classes cost $40 each week (school terms) (jazz, ballet and tap)

    DS is on a scholarship program for violin and bass clarinet at school at the moment so we are not paying for lessons which is amazing. Next year we will though. We bought him a violin this year which was $270

    DS plays soccer. Cost was around $300 for the season. He also dances at my dance school so I don't pay myself for that 😏. DD also dances at my dance school (on top of her other dancing - she is obsessed).

    I think we're doing quite well cost-wise at this point. Our kids are 7 and 10.
