Do your kids do any sports? Which ones? How did they/you choose?

Brayden played basketball and will probably do it again next year. He is also starting wrestling this, Summer.

Ryan does karate and baseball. I picked karate because of issues he was having. He loves it and really does well. I asked him if he wanted to try baseball ( he tried soccer and wasn't fond of it ). And he wanted to give baseball a shot. He likes it so far. I think he will play again next year.

Julia is playing soccer right now. She hates it. She also does dance. She will go back to cheerleading in the fall.

 When my son was little, he took his swimming lessons. Since I was out on disability at the time, I walked him to the pool every day after the towns rec summer camp. He swam every day at the town pool and played volleyball there. The pool director was the athletic director at the high school in town. He told me that you let your child pursue his dreams, not yours. He said his sons played football in college, while most of the kids from town did not as they were burnt out of sports by high school age because there parents had chosen the sports, not the kids.

Mine was that kid that as soon as he could walk there was a ball in his hands, My yard was filled with the neighborhood kids. The yard was filled with balls so they all could play whatever they wanted. If there were three kids in the yard there was a baseball game going on. He started karate, soccer, basketball and baseball at the normal  age, because he wanted to. He was chosen for the traveling baseball team his first year in baseball.He has a good arm and can catch well. [he always wanted to play baseball at home, so if there was no friends in the yard, I would  throw him the ball. I throw really bad. One day during a kiddies baseball game a kid hit the ball. As the ball was up in the as the sun was in everyone's eyes and everyone said no one would get it. My son caught it, and everyone applauded ..lol. My son told me that the ball was easy to catch after all the bad balls I had thrown him ..lol.

His passion was soccer ... he was the goalie in college. He is 6'3", he played basketball in the college gym for fun, and does karate.  He needs to do an internship and will graduate as a SPORTS MANAGEMENT major.

I AM SO HAPPY THAT I DO NOT HAVE TO WATCH ANYMORE GAMES ANYMORE.

D is playing Tball. We asked him if he wanted to play. He lives it!!! My husband and I both love baseball, take the boys to games, so we thought he might enjoy it.

My kids love soccer!!  They've tried any sport they wanted to, but soccer has just always been in their blood.  And I never get tired of watching.

Baseball and basketball. Well Caden isn't old enough for basketball yet. They both love the sports so we signed them up for baseball at 4 and Jordan started basketball at 7 which is youngest you can play in our rec. both loved playing so we then just advanced Jordan to travel leagues for them now and other trainings and all stars etc. Caden will do the same in a couple years if he chooses to :)
