Kid just got bumped up from her swimming lessons to a competitive swim team.
We're really proud of her and excited that she has found a sport (a lifetime one at that) that she really enjoys.
BUT I'm interested in hearing from any swim team parents about what this time commitment, etc., is like.
She's starting out with training 4 times a week.
Which, again, if she likes it... is just amazing year round exercise.
And while there are certainly costs, it seems that swimming is one of the cheaper sports (I may be grossly misinformed... let me know).
The good news for us, is that as homeschoolers, we can actually fit in the training without it being a stress time-wise.
The bad news is that this means four days a week of trying to find a way to entertain Baby while we wait out her lessons (which is a definite concern... that's a lot to ask out of a 4 year old).
Any swim team experience or insights would be greatly appreciated.
She won't start doing meets until the Fall... so I don't have to worry about that right now. But, I'd love to know what that will entail. Especially since parents are required to volunteer at a couple meets every year.
Also, price wise... we're looking at $50 a month for 4 times a week training. That seems really good to me... but are there costs that are going to come up once they are attending meets?
Okay... over and out.
