  • I think about 4 or 5, or at least that is when we will start putting DS in T-Ball.

  • I think around 4 or 5 as well. I know our city has a soccer early learners workshop which is for 3-4 year olds once a week. They basically learn a few skills and play around.

  • My 4 year 3 month old started soccer last week. She is the only one on her team who did not play for since they were three. There are two soccer seasons and a summer camp so some of these 4 year olds have played on up to 5 previous seasons. Do you believe this?

  • Once they are potty trained and are able to follow directions.

  • We were considering baseball this spring, but reconsidered because I don't think he's quite mature enough. So we're thinking 4 will be a good time to start.

  • once they are fully potty trained and can take direction and follow it

  • I think an organized program at 4 is long as it's not competition based. I fully plan to put my DS in soccer by that point but more for the activity and team building. Plus, he is actually REALLY good with a ball...and LOVES it at 3! LOL
