Which sport to choose?

When choosing a sport to practice, it is essential that the child feels attracted to it and feels comfortable practicing it. It should be a fun time for them and they should enjoy it.

Although the choice depends on the child’s age and preferences, it is ideal for the youngest children to look for activities that favor the improvement of psychomotor skills, balance and coordination. However, as they grow older, in adolescence, they can carry out more specific and specialized training.
