    My dd is 9, she has one horse riding lesson per week which is $35 but she also has her own horse which costs ALOT to keep but she loves it.

    Dd and ds have both just joined scouts, not too sure how much that is yet because they get to go for the first few weeks for free to make sure they like it.

    DD goes to a lovely dance studio, not overly competitive and totally age appropriate. For $140 term she does ballet and jazz.

    For $110 a term she also does small group tennis lessons. Last term they were actually one on one and this term she has one little buddy in the class.

    Nothing currently but looking at joining him up to bowling and at the pcyc. He enjoys bowling which is good but not sure what the pcyc can offer him yet as have to go down there first.

    The girls have tried a number of things over the years. Dancing, Cheerleading, Touch, Basketball, Netball. (Netball was cheap only $50 each for the season plus the uniform from target.) But Gymnastics and Swimming has remained constant with all of them.

    All 3 go to Gymnastics at one place. DD1 does levels & DD2 wants to next year while DD3 does recreational. Its through a Youth Club and only $85 per term plus annual registration. DD1 & DD3 go to another gymnastics on saturdays and its $82 for DD2 and $130 for DD1. (Because DD2 isn't doing levels at the moment)

    Then DD2 & DD3 do swimming lessons. DD3 really loves it and we might do more for her soon. Her coach told her she might move up to a proper squad soon anyway. (She's in a stroke correction/mini squad at the moment but our swim school is really strict on technique. At another club they would probably both be in a squad by now) We pay $14.50 per week for #1 child, $13.50 for #2 and when DD1 went we paid $12.50 for #3 paid per term. If you have a 4th child they are free at our swim school.

    DS (21 months) only does little kickers $260 for 12 weeks and Gymbaroo $12 a week but one of the good things about paying his school fees when he starts is music and sport ( incl swimming, tennis, soccer, rugby, track and field , basketball, cricket and waterpolo) is all included! DH did Bondi nippers so we may look at that when he turns 5 but not sure how much it is yet

    DD does swimming once a week which is $50/month as well as 2 hours dancing a week which is usually around $250/term plus concert fees which are about $30/dance and she currently does contemporary, jazz and hip hop. It's her 5th year dancing though and she is fantastic so mum and I raise the money, plus I use my tax return to pay for this.
