To develop hand/eye coordination and fine muscle skills not to mention avoiding obesity, a child has to be out playing and exercising. As participation in sport promotes movement but more importantly encourages teammanship and socialising it is pretty well vital as part of a child's growth and development. As long as playing sport doesn't become an obsession where winning is the only goal.

Of course I think its important, mainly at a young age as they are always active and full of energy. However in saying that once they get older it should be their choice to pick. My sis in law rotates what activities her kids do, my niece does soccer, dance, calisthenics, music, and various other things - she is only 4 but my sis in law does this so she can try everything and make friends.

Exercise is critical for health. Exercise is boring. Sport makes exercise tolerable.

Children should be encouraged but not forced, encouragement if they enjoy the sport and allowed to walk away if it's not something they enjoy. With so many sports activities available to children nowadays, it also helps them build social skills as well as physical and mental skills as well.

Very important for growth, fitness, strength, health, agility, reflexes, team/social interaction, learning rules of fair play, flexibility, fresh air, fun, stimulation and so much more. It is vital.

Very important that kids participate as early as they can.
