    Ouch! That's hugely expensive. What sport is it? I'd definitely be looking at alternative clubs. It's insane to be spending that much on a sport for under 10 years. Maybe if they were reaching an elite level but not as novices.

    BUT we all have different priorities on where we want our money to go 😊

    It's such a hard decision to know whether to continue or not. They do cheer and dance all at the one club.
    When we did gymnastics it was only $10 a session, ballet $15 each and swimming was the priciest at $20 per child but this far nore than that. They could do gym, ballet and swimming for 1/4 of the price.

    My son does indoor soccer which is 120 per school term. He also does guitar which I know is not a sport but that's 300 a term. Kids are expensive . Lol.

    Default How much do you spend on children's sports

    Holy moly, that's ridiculous! How the hell do they justify that kind of expense?

    I've got my kids in swimming lessons for term one, works out to be $16.50/kid/lesson. Then DD wants to do dancing at $10/week but they've yet to tell me how much costumes etc are. Now I have to find something for the boys to do so that they don't feel left out but everything is so expensive.

    That's a mind blowing amount to me!

    Over $600 a week.

    I don't spend any money on sport for my DS (yet, he's only 4 though), but when I do I imagine it would be a pretty small outlay. I simply can't afford expensive activities.

    Atm my 4 kids do zero sports, they are extremely active kids but we travel a lot and they have never really asked. As soon as they ask to do a sport though I won't hesitate to put them in one.

    My dd does swimming which is about $16 per week
    Dancing at kindy $10 per week
    Physi kids at kindy $10 per week

    Once she starts school it's just swimming. I hope her dancing costumes are solid gold for that amount of money!

    DD does kindergym which is about $15 a class and then swimming which is $13 a class but also includes entry to the pool whenever she likes with an adult for free. I'm also looking at dance school for the new year which range from $9 a class to around $15 a class. She's 2.
