My daughter has cheerleaded for 3 years, she has always liked it. She is very sporty, so it wasn't no surprise that she asked me the other day if she could play soccer instead of cheerlead. That would be all fine and dandy with me, but she already has her cheer uniform from last year, cheer shoes, and pompoms. I would only have to pay the registration fee this year, unlike the 3 where she was growing each year. We don't have tons of money to go and buy her a soccer uniform, the shoes, socks, and whatever else goes along with soccer. What should I do? Tell her she can't play and make her cheerlead or do nothing at all, OR just get over it, and figure out a way to pay. I know that ultimately it's down to my husband and I, but your opinions are greatly appreciated!Answer Question

See if there is a consignment shop that you could resell her cheerleading stuff, check with the team and see if an incoming kid would like to buy a used one from you, post a sign at school to see if someone wants to buy or craig's list or amazon. If you can sell (or trade something else that she has at a consignment shop) might help you come up with some of the money.
Also check for used stuff for the soccer stuff http://www.cjkidz.com/sports.html (it shows new or used) or check with the soccer team to see if anyone has some used stuff to buy.
