Health Tip: Sign Up Your Child for a Sport

By on May 10, 2010

Enrolling your child in a baseball, soccer or other sports league can ensure regular exercise, promote friendships and instill a sense of teamwork.

The Nemours Foundation offers these suggestions before you sign up your child for a team sport:

  • Consider how much time the sport will take away from family time, homework and relaxation.
  • Think about how sports participation will impact the rest of the family.
  • Make sure you work out any transportation and schedule issues, especially if you have more than one child playing sports.
  • Consider lending a hand to your child’s sport. Volunteering can encourage your child to participate and help you spend quality time together.
