    My daughter isn't really interested in any team sports right now. She's talking about ballet a lot, and I'm thinking of just waiting until August for the rec council classes to have registration again. I don't really like how most of those are organized, but they are cheaper, so if she hates it, it's not as a big a loss.

    My daughter isn't interested in organized sports. She isn't coordinated or talented in that area.

    We will just have to shoot some hoops in a fun way in the driveway, kick around the soccer ball in the back yard and ride our bikes. I have a Tai Chi video I thought of us using in the mornings to start our day.

    My husband coaches our local soccer Rec team and my kids seem to have inherited his love of soccer and play. No one is especially good at it (although my almost 6yo has a better idea of the game than many of the older kids), but our town team is very laid back and encourage enjoyment of the game and how to play as a team over winning.

    Both our boys ("Kindergarten" and "2nd grade") are members of our local karate dojo and train 2x/week.

    James does two sports classes right now, both through different homeschool programs. He's very athletic, and loves to play (including various team sports), but doesn't really like the team sports thing (which is completely fine with me). His latest adventure is going to be archery. It starts up next month. He really wants to do fencing, but he has to be 8 - much to his disgust.

    Max has really enjoyed fencing. While held at the community rec center, it's led by a former Olympian and has a great mix...anywhere from 5 to 70 years old, public school kids, private, homeschooled. We rented equipment by the lesson from the instructor until I was sure Max was interested, as it's not too cheap - plus, kids have this awful way of growing out of stuff about three months after you buy it for them!

    My three boys are involved in things all over the place. They've done swimming lessons in the summer at our town's outdoor pool and are right now starting their second session of homeschool group-organised swimming lessons at an indoor pool in the city. They also participate in a recreational gymnastics club in another town. They've done baseball in the past couple of springs, but we're not sure that there's going to be a team this year.

    My daughter is starting her 8th year of softball through a local rec league. She loves it.

    My son played baseball for 5 years, but then decided team sports weren't for him. Instead, he trains for and runs occasional 5K races with me.

    Our only "requirement" is that they choose at least one sport to participate in during a year.
