Tiger Woods began learning the game of golf at 6 months old. Pele dribbled a soccer ball before he could walk. Michael Phelps swam home from school everyday. What about your little guy or girl? I had a mom ask me if it was okay that her two year old had run almost a mile that morning.
Her daughter followed her husband around the track as he was training for a half-marathon. She just kept going around and around, loving every minute of it. And herein lies my short answer to the aforementioned question. What age should a child begin organized sports? Based on my ten plus years of experience working with children and parents, the answer is, it should be on a case by case basis with an emphasis on monitoring their love of the game.
For the long answer, stay tuned to look at the following subjects in further detail; How is the organized sport really organized i.e. what are the priorities of the organization? Where is your heart when you sign lil' man up for a class or a team? How does your fitness level and commitment influence you child's athletic endeavours?
