Hey dads, how can you get your kids to start doing sports? I wasn't too athletic when I was young, so I figured that I can push my kids to start being active at a young age.

Start small -- you can take them out for walks, hikes and jogs. These are great ways to instill a sense of adventure as well as incorporate some exercise. You can try including some sports games like playing catch, kicking the ball around and even have friendly races. Once they have gotten the taste of how fun sports can be, they will probably gravitate towards joining a sports team in school :)

I think with kids it's always about exposure and influence! Expose them to different sports through trial or summer classes. See which one they take to. If they have friends or older cousins who are into sports as well, you can have them tag along!
