Tiffany Kim has plan to participate in major competition games ahead. But getting there of course, won’t be easy. For her, it will take hundreds of hours skating and conditioning off-ice, a full traditional school schedule, rehabbing through painful injuries, and traveling frequently to compete against other top talents.

It’s true in nearly every sport, Coaching fees, travel expenses, and physical therapy and athletic conditioning to keep the body operating at elite levels add up. But figure skating is among the priciest, with costs running more than $35,000 a year and as much as $50,000 annually.
