Most travel sports aren't much different. The travel team for our daughters rec soccer league costs thousands and charges a $100 fee to apply for financial assistance. Kids sports are a huge business because everyone's kid is above average and has to play other above average kids at fancy complexes in other states. Besides, think of all the partial scholarships your 100k investment might get you.

I do have a friend in Australia whose 13-year-old kid is being scouted by FIFA.  The kid's nickname is "Meal Ticket."
