Will Your Preschooler Play Any Sports This Year?

youth soccer for preschoolers

Even though it's the end of January and spring seems (and feels) oh-so-far away, if you are thinking of enrolling your child in a sport, the time to register is now. Mr. S. played soccer last fall and will do so again starting in March. While he was sometimes reluctant to go to his games, once we arrived at the field, he was happy to play. He was especially happy at the end of the season when he was awarded with a trophy!

Sports at this age are less about being competitive and more about teaching them the basic rules, keeping them active, and having fun. If your little one isn't crazy about the idea of playing just yet, don't push. See if you can re-register your child for the next year.

Will your preschooler play a sport? Which one?
