Youth sports are a great way to promote physical activity and a healthy lifestyle for your children. In addition to all of the health benefits and life lessons that sports offer, studies also show that kids who participate in sports at a young age tend to earn better grades and have better social lives than those who do not. Not to mention how much fun they are!
If your child is interested in playing a sport, they are not alone. According to EngageSports.com, there are more than 45 million children ages 6-17 who currently participate in at least one sport, with basketball being the most popular choice (more than 9.5 million players). What else are kids interested in playing? Take a look for yourself.
