How should I choose a sports program for my child?
From Sally S. Harris, M.D., MPH
You should look for a community sports program that encourages participation for everyone and emphasizes age-appropriate skill development rather than competition and winning. Ensure that appropriate safety issues are addressed, and that coaching and structure are appropriate for your child's age. Level of enjoyment and fun experienced by the children who are participating are some of the best indicators of a good program.
