Our son is 6 and started prep this year. He currently does swimming once a week after school during spring and summer. He doesn’t play a weekend sport and I’m unsure when we will start this. We have 3 children under 6 and would like them all to choose an activity they enjoy, but we also don’t want to be tied down all year round due to sporting commitments. Winter sport is what I grew up with, playing netball while my brothers did soccer, for 6 months of the year, so I can picture what it might look like for our family, but I’m hesitant to enroll our eldest in anything just yet. He also hasn’t asked or expressed any interest in an extracurricular activity and I don’t want to force this upon him, but I do envision an active healthy lifestyle for my children. What age did your children join a team sport or engage in an activity outside school?
