Poker. I think we had a few games played at our house when son was in H.S. 'Course, we kept rolls of pennies on hand for them, so it was more the strategies than the money aspect.

When I was in high school, all of my favorite sports (anything involving firearms, auto racing, poker, etc.) were strictly forbidden. I didn't get to play and I got over it.

"Pay to Play" is one of the two main scare tactics districts use to frighten people into paying more taxes.

And the other one is? <Drum roll, please>

Bug, was your question about a solution directed to the poll question? As in, what's your solution if not pay to play?

We could have afforded it. I voted no, it isn't fair tho.

Shoes, etc are expensive to start with, no matter what sport. And then a lot of kids playing are limited in if they can find a job or what type of a job, which means parents may be underwriting things like car insurance, etc. So already a cost to sports.

Plus, unless you make all kids pay for any club, like TACT, honor society and all, that rule is also inherently unfair.

The football boosters used to raise money but then give parents stadium blankets, etc, all extra stuff. Can't the booster clubs help underwrite the sport?

And I really don't know the answer to this question, but where does the ticket sales, concession stand money go? Does that help pay for sports or not?
