To lessen the stress of researching the cost of extracurricular activities, we have done the homework for you, providing approximate costs for a range of activities. We have not included the cost of equipment (rackets, musical instruments, shoes, etc.), but as many activities as possible have been included, as well as the range in cost between private and group classes. This list is by no means all-encompassing but should serve as a handy generalised guide to assist in budgeting for the season. – Lindsay Thompson
