Well, generally around here you can get ice by the hour - ranges around $10-20.00 depending upon where, when etc...add onto that coaches fee which I believe I read $90.00 per hour....(was that right???) I would imagine you would get at least 3 hours of coaching time per week. Then you have the other training that is done off ice such as ballroom, etc....so maybe by the end of each week you are looking at close to 400.00 per week. It's crazy!
The skate blades I would imagine they are getting at a reduced rate as they are known for using the Watts Freedom blade but regular retail price is around 470.00.....Blades can be used for several years - providing your foot doesn't grow! Boots are another 470.00 and those don't last more than a year.
Then you have about four costumes - which are used all season. And you all know how much dressing up can cost!
