Congratulations to your daughter! Be sure to get a very clear explanation of "volunteer" requirements and expenses beyond tuition. Typically you will pay tuition to the gym to cover practices, then there will be a booster club through which you pay meet fees, coaches' fees and travel expenses for meets, and uniform expenses. Booster clubs operate in a lot of different ways, some of which may be a bit dodgy under the tax code. Typically the booster club will ask parents to participate in fund-raising efforts, then distribute the proceeds among all members to help defray the costs of competition. Some of that fund-raising activity may include staffing meets, hosting bingo games, etc. The amount of work parents are required to put into fund-raising is not always proportional to the benefit families receive. It is very important to understand exactly what you're getting yourself into.I did a little happy dance. Ha! Tryouts are next month, which she said she wants us to do to determine Bronze vs. Silver, and also for me to attend the parents meeting and get the "lay of the land." They require volunteer hours as part of tuition.
