The Richland school district is considering dropping gymnastics and adding bowling.
Assistant superintendent Todd Baddley's memorandum on the subject was presented to the school board Tuesday.
The cost of the two sports is similar, though bowling would have drastically higher participation.
Gymnastics has just three students involved on two teams. The district pays the coach $8,705 per year and brings in just $155 in participation fees.
Estimates for the bowling team include 80 students, bringing in $4,400 in participation fees. Two coaches would cost $6,710 a year and the district would have to rent space at a bowling alley, which would cost roughly $3,000 per year.
The board will decide whether to keep gymnastics and not add bowling, offer bowling and dropping gymnastics or offer bowling and grandfather in the present gymnastic members.
