    Parents of Aspiring Olympians Wrestle With the Cost, TD Ameritrade Finds

    Posted in News

      Raising an Olympian can be expensive, and TD Ameritrade (AMTD) wants to help. The online brokerage, a sponsor of the Olympics, announced on Monday the findings of a new survey that says many parents put their own savings and financial needs on the back burner to pay for youth sports. The lesson, though, isn’t to give up on dreams of making it to the Olympics or professional sports, according to Carrie Braxdale, managing director of investor services at TD Ameritrade.

    Soccer. Basketball. Football. Gymnastics. Baseball. Fencing. Fencing? Yes, fencing. A sport that a child can start learning at a young age, and one activity that isn’t normally in the lexicon when it comes to kids and parents talking about the usual suspects of athletic pursuits. The four-year-old Darien Fencing Club, located in the VFW Hall on Noroton Avenue in Darien, is a Mecca for kids from both Fairfield and Westchester counties to discover how fencing can be a foil (of sorts) to the inability to concentrate or focus on a particular task at hand. “Fencing is a sport that is intensely individualistic, yet at its core demands consideration of and respect for others,” Jeffrey Binder, owner of the club, said. “It is a physically demanding sport, that is equally mental.” Darien Fencing Club is a member of the United States Fencing Association and is a fully-insured organization, offering group fencing lessons to children age 7 to 13.
