How important are sports/activities?

I think it's really important for kids to try a bunch of different activities. Team sports teach teamwork, individual sports teach self motivation, and general activities/clubs teach kids how to find what they really like. It's really good for kids of all ages to get out of the house, away from their toys and games, and try something new.

    I think physical activity of any kind is important to children for their health and their development.
      My son is six years old, he was always been an active kid. He loves to play outside, go to the park and go swimming. Over this past summer I signed him up for a once a week sports camp. He played three days a week. One day basketball, one day baseball, and one day soccer. He enjoyed doing them all. Now he just started his real first season of coach pitch baseball. I think its important to get your kids active for many reasons such as, getting them out of the house and not sit on the couch all day watching tv and okaying video games, it helps them maintain a healthy lifestyle of being active, teaches them team work, and to meet to kids their age, I think it also helps them in school because at least for my son if he doesn't to well in school we as his parents aren't going to pay the money on sports.
