    Re: Kids Sports Clubs/Sports Prices

    See, this is why I'm being such a bad Mom and none of them are in anything. And it's probably about half that cost here for things, like soccer was $70 and that included everything for the season. (well, except shoes and shin guards.)

    I must say our towns Rec Dept is very reasonable....

    Football- $125
    Baseball- $75
    Soccer- $60
    Dance- $55 (8 week program)
    Bowling- $9 a week

    All prices are for the first child.... every child after gets a reduced rate.

    We have been trying to figure out how to get her started and found a good place close to our house.

    Karate is #39 for 3 weeks, then it is a $61 registration fee (every 6 months) and then it is $89 per month. At least it is for two 45 minute classes each week.

    Gymnastics is $25 annual registration fee and $100 for an 8 week session. Each class is 1 hour and 15 minutes.

    I think we are getting a fairly good deal. The inital 3 week payment for karate included his outfit. We had to buy Ali a leotard, but that was all she needs for gymnastics.

    The biggest issue now is keeping the schedules straight.
    That's not a bad price for Gymnastics. When I had started, it was about $40/month for 1 hour, 1 day a week. When I was invited to join a recreational gymanstics class that was high-ranked, it was about $80 a month for twice a week, 2 hours.
    Leotards aren't really that expensive, and you can wear a swimsuit if you have to, or just sweats and a t-shirt.
    Ali will enjoy Gymnastics, if you have any questions about the sport or skills, ask me, I still know all.

    Dance for me is (for hardshoe & Softshoe, H=1/2 hour, 1 day a week, S=1 hour, 1 day a week) about $215, plus $20 annual registration. Not including the cost of the shoes I had to buy last year. Hardshoes = $155. Softshoes (bought a few years back) $45.

    Wow, this makes me want to rethink the whole having kids thing. $300 for a year of chess for a 2nd grader is just...wrong.

    Reading this thread makes me love the Boys and Girl's Club even more than I already did! $130/month includes transportation and after school care for 2 hours a day. It includes things like a Chess Club, Girl's Club, etc. For only $25 more per month Bailey gets to join the Cooking Club and take guitar lessons!

    Our 2 most expensive were ski team and soccer. At least here both involved travel and ski team required a season pass, lift tickets and equipment.
    The costs actually went down in High School as he became more involved in school sports instead of club sports.

    I can understand, the pricing of soccer and especially the ski team. I paid over $300 for Kyler for football, including all the equipment etc. That was acceptable. But $300 for a second graders chess club?? That just seems outrageous, especially since there is no equipment costs or anything. KWIM?

    started a topic Kids Sports Clubs/Sports Prices

    Kids Sports Clubs/Sports Prices

    Is it just me or are kids sports and clubs getting outrageously overpriced lately??

    My youngest, he's in second grade, just got an invitation for Chess Club. He did it last year, one day a week afterschool for an hour. This year it'd be the same plus tournaments and they have hired a "world renowned chess champion" their words not mine. Last year it was $30 for the semester and this year it's..........................$160!! For a semester! He's in second grade! But, they then offer you the discount price of one full school year for $300
