I am starting my soon to be 3 (April) in t-ball and soccer this year. They are both 3-4 year old leagues. I think he will have a blast in them. He loves playing sports already

 My son started baseball at 3 years old.  Tball actually.  My oldest daughter was the same.  I also started swim lessons around that time.  My youngest started dance at 2 and a half.

As soon as I can find skates in his size I will teach him how to play hockey.  And baseball  this summer. H already started playing catch with us. He will be 1 on Friday.  I was taught how to play most sports at the same age from my dad.

When she its old enough to understand. They have soccer for 2 year olds here. They won't understand and will just run around. I want her to actually know its a game.

I agree. My cousin signed her daughter up for soccer at 1 1/2 but wasn't old enough to understand at all. Here they don't start sports till 3 but that is fine with me :)

My oldest was in rec soccer at 4. Today he is almost 17 & will be a senior next fall & has played every season but one- seasons with rec soccer were spring & fall! I think he missed one fall due to my work schedule & practices being at 5pm (I didn't get off til 530).

My other kids don't play sports (lack of interest) but the youngest who will be 4 soon wants to play soccer! I'm very excited for this!
