Sad thing is around here it's one of the Cheapest Options. He's not really into playing Sports, but he Loves the Movements.
I can only imagine if Baseball & Football are as expensive as Hockey(& the Other Team Sports are here) how Much you have to Fork over!
We're planning on eventually Martial Arts, Gymnastics, Dance, Swimming & Horseback Riding (actually the Cheapest other than the Transportation out to the Farm!) for Both (All) Our Kids. I know My Daughter's also going to want Cheer....& Umm.... Yeah.... Massive OUCH! But at least the (K-12)School My Daughter will be going to should have the Dance portion well taken care of! But we think that she's going to want to go Competitive.
My Son's only done 2 Months of TKD & Already wants to Drive for his Black Belt! O.O I'm glad the Program he's in has it figured that a Dedicated Adult can get their Black Belt in about 3.5 Years, but Can go Faster if they Go Hardcore. But Kids have other Rules, they Must be 8 to get their 3rd Belt, Must be 10 for their 5th Belt, & 11 for their First Black Belt. They Can get their next Belts faster, but they have so many extra things they have to do at the Younger ages to be able to get to the next Level that they have to go Beyond Super Hard Core. To that Point of Hard core where there is Nothing that a Parent can do to Get them there faster other than Support them. They have to have that Drive that No one Can force! My Son is 5. We've told him that if he REALLY want's his Black Belt HE has to work at it Hard. And that this year he must go at the Basic Pace, Next year if he still wants it that hard we'll put in the Extra Classes & let him go Hard. I Hope he wants his Belt but not Super Hardcore, 'cause that's when it get's REALLY Expensive!
