So you want your child to have the best opportunities with respect to Sport when then are older? Here is a tip you can take to the BANK… (before teenage years) expose your child to many different activities and sports-games with the understanding that the goal is for it to be a GAME, not a competition or training session. The body and mind of a child is developing and that includes the nervous system and the joints! The more activities the child is exposed to the better. There is plenty of time for them to begin to train and specialize as they get older and that is true regardless of their ability level. For more information on this popular topic- youth sports and development, look for lectures and seminars we host the Legacy Sport & Wellness Center in Dallas.
