Not every child wants to join Little League or be on the school basketball team. If team sports don’t thrill your child, there’s plenty a youngster can do to get the recommended 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day.
Free play can be very important for kids who don’t participate in a team sport. Children can be involved in activities like riding bikes, playing tag, jumping rope, or dancing. Kids might also enjoy individual sports or other organized activities, such as:
- Dance classes
- Inline skating
- Martial arts
Practice patience, as your child may have difficulty deciding on an activity. It is worth the wait. For your child, it’s a step toward developing active habits that can last a lifetime.
