If you have kids involved in sports I'm curious what you pay for their participation. City/state, sport, age, cost...

Where we live, NE of Atlanta, the cost to put our kids in sports just seems outrageous. I have a 12 & 10 yr old that play football and it costs about $300 each. One of them wants to wrestle that's about another $275, and my 7 yr old played baseball, that was, I think, $125.

We used to live in Texas and the cost was nowhere near this high. I think football was like $60 or $75 bucks.

Just wondering if these are reasonable costs or other people in other areas are paying more or less.

Through the Walton County Parks/Rec it's $65. I have 3 boys in football, then they will do baseball in the spring...of course there is other team costs as well here and there.

When my kids did gymnastics at the local rec center, it was about $100/mo for the team. Developmental classes were less. This was several years ago in Colorado. Private gyms charge more.
