When discussing young athletes, experts are almost all in agreement that general athleticism, movement literacy and general fitness are all keys to long term success, participation and enjoyment of sport as well as in life.
Even if your child shows an aptitude and love of a sport, specialization in that sport should be avoided until they are well into their teens. This approach will reduce burnout, limit injuries and promote overall athletic ability. With those benefits it is no surprise that children who play a variety of sports and games show improved levels of competency and enjoyment once they hit their late teens. http://ow.ly/i/xfW4t
