I am writing to comment on the Ventura Packers football team. I personally think it is pathetic to charge a whopping $250 to join, plus the expense of purchasing a practice uniform.
One would think that having a child participate in after-school programs should not put such a financial crunch on parents.
When I was a child, kids participated in after-school programs, including sports, that were free of charge.
The schools of Ventura should put together a program that children can participate in without causing such a strain.
