Hi i would like to share my views or comments on sports expensive

Watching your kid compete on a team can be one of parenting’s great pleasures, but sports can be a real workout for your wallet. While the days of pickup games in the park are not entirely gone, schools are increasingly replacing free programs with “pay to play” arrangements. Participation fees, equipment, uniforms, training, and travel can really add up. Putting one child in a team sport for a single season can cost as much as $5,000. Now that’s taking one for the team!

Thankfully, whether your kid is a novice diver or a varsity soccer captain, there are ways to manage the high costs of athletics. If you’ll pardon the many sports puns to come, here’s your game plan:

Ready, set…

  • Talk costs with other parents. Before your kid commits to a particular sport, tally up its associated expenses and consider whether you can afford them. Ask the youth league or school coordinator how much you’ll have to pay in years to come. Is there a huge bump in costs at the next level? Chat with other parents to get a sense of incidental costs, such as chipping in for snacks or travel.
  • Take it slow. I don’t need to tell you that kids tend to change their minds, so don’t go all in at first. Find a low-key class or recreational league for your budding athlete to get a taste of a new sport. And encourage them to focus on one sport at a time, rather than spreading themselves (and your own finances) thin over several activities.
  • Choose the right team. Teams and leagues aren’t one-size-fits-all. If your kid’s goal is to get a sports scholarship, or to excel on a regional level, then perhaps an elite, traveling club—with its relatively high fees and travel costs—is the right choice. But if your child just wants after-school fun and exercise with their friends, then a less competitive—and more affordable—program should fit the bill.
