My daughter is 6 and is going into 1st grade. She has the opportunity to be on a competitive cheer/gymnastics team. I am trying to decide if it is worth it or not.
The pros are that I believe this will help her work ethic, teamwork, and general fitness. She has tried other activities and she doesn't get the same joy as she does with this. Frankly, she is not very good at some of the other activities she has tried, such as soccer.
The cons are the cost both financially and time. The cost will be about $2,000 per year for the lessons, uniforms, competitions, etc.It is twice a week with some practices and competitions on Saturdays.
