Can you deduct YMCA swim team fees where parents are required to volunteer their time at swim meets?

My son joined the Youth YMCA swim team and wanted to know if this is tax deductible.  Parents are required to work during the swim meets.

Swim team fees and the time spent volunteering at your child's youth sports activity are not deductible for income tax purposes, even if you are required to volunteer as a condition of the child's participation. 

Contributions to individuals are never deductible; this includes contributions for the benefit of a particular individual as is the case for your son's swim team fees.
