We asked our readers:
“What sports do your children play & how did you choose them? Are they the same sports you played as a kid?”
My boys are grown now but they were on a homeschool bowling league for 8 years. They also did dance-jazz, ballet and tap. We tried soccer and t-ball and they weren’t a good fit. I was a dancer and a swimmer growing up.

My children select which activities they are interested in. They aren’t necessarily what I did as a child, but there has been a little overlap.

My youngest participates in Special Olympics bowling. I chose it because he enjoys Wii bowling and I thought he would enjoy it.

Basketball, Soccer, and Football. We have him try them all at least once. You don’t know what you like until you try it.

My daughter plays soccer now. We simply gave her a list of all the open activities for the summer and she chose. I never played soccer so it’s fun to see her do her own thing!

At this time my kids are all teenagers and none are playing sports. But when they did we had a wide range of Basketball, Tee ball, Soccer, Track, Football, and Swimming. But they all chose. I never chose for them.

We’d love it if you let us know more about the sports you’re involved in!
