    Default Sport ideas for 5 year old

    Ds goes swimming.
    He is 5.5 years old and starting school.
    He has lots of energy to burn and my SIL suggested LITTLE ATHLETICS. What is this? We are in Melbourne.

    Little Athletics is running, high jump, long jump, discus, shot put etc. but it is a summer sport and I would think it would be too late to register at this stage.

    Mt son is turning 5 this year and he is going to start playing rugby league.

    DS is starting Auskick this year (mini AFL) and he has been doing little kickers for years

    I'm planning to call Auskick once the term starts too.
    I think he'll like Little Athletics by the sounds of it. You should see him jump!

    You could contact your local little athletics but in nsw, I think the season starts in September and ends in March.

    Little Aths is quite big around where I live. But, as a PP said it is sort of half way through the season already.
    Auskick, Judo/ Karate/ Martial Arts, scouts (I know it is not technically a sport but a lot of physical tasks and challenges) or soccer are some ideas you could look into

    DS1 is 5 and does Little Athletics. He loves it. This year he will be starting soccer as well and he did intensive swimming this week which we'll do next summer as well and possibly during the year if we can fit it in.
    Soccer is big in our family though so it was always his first choice.

    My little boy loves playing soccer. He is really into playing tennis and golf. He has really impressed me with his skill in golf.

    We did little A's but lost interest as there were so many kids in his group and it took ages for him to have a go. Needed a lot of parent interaction so by the time Friday came and I had taught all week (90 in my class!), I was over it. Maybe we will revisit it when he is older.

    Auskick was amazing. We did auskick and ds loved it so much he joined the team straight away.
    Otherwise maybe dancing or gymnastics is always fun. who doesn't love tumbling around and crashing into foam pits?
