I coach youth football.. (Don't have a kid. But only reason I would have my kid in sport at a young age is for him to have fun and for him to find new friends and socialize... Hopefully that will help him love the sport.
I wouldn't be surprised if some of those kids end up killing themselves or their dad. I would've beat the piss out of those dads. My old coach was an ex Steelers TE and the team watched him choke out an overzealous dad one day at a scrimmage because the dad was talking to his son like these dads were.
I want them to find a sport they like and stick with it. Football, wrestling, and rugby seem like very /fit/ sports but it doesn't matter what they pick. Children who play sports tend to be active the rest of their lives anyways.
Nope, I pushed my kids into scouting. Most kids either get injured or just don't have what it takes to play varsity HS in any kind of decent league. Also, becoming an eagle scout gets a lot more notice from universities than sports (unless you are playing at state champion level)
I come from a breed of champions. Me and my brothers were first team all-state in our sports Dad was an All-American Linebacker Mom was a D1 hurdler Uncle pitched in the majors Brothers and I were D1 athletes My offspring will participate in competitive sports and they will dominate the competition. By God it's be in their blood to win
>>35700450 Probably, I had a lot of talent (one of the fastest kids and highest jumpers at a black elementary and middle school. fastest kid when my family moved to the suburbs) but my parents were never physically fit, or particularly smart, so they always insisted i focus on my studies (tested highly gifted in elementary school, but they never gave me guidance with that either. just nebulous advice like try hard.) My siblings are all the same way. Feels weird, I know my parents did their best but I know I could have turned out a lot better with someone more skilled to guide me. Figure it's my job to fix it next time around.
>>35700450 My kids are going to work out and be active with me from a young age, and I'm going to encourage them to strive for the top spot in everything they decide to spend time out of their lives on. Odds are they'll be into one or more sports and take them seriously, but if they choose to focus on something else that cultivates them then I'll encourage it.
>>35701545 >Eagle Scout gets more notice from universities than sports I'm an Eagle Scout and Vigil Honors Arrowman, and I'm here to say that's utter bullshit. If your kids are smart and pretty good at a sport, they can get recruitment consideration from elite colleges easily.
