  1. I’m guessing you used pricing for recreational gymnastics as a basis for this infographic. I could have easily purchased a car and then some with the fees for my 7-year-old daughter’s USAG competitive gymnastics. My 9-year-old daughter plays club/travel soccer and it’s a small fraction of the costs associated with gymnastics.
