    Default Sports for 5 year old girls

    Our son loves his soccer but was looking into what Miss5 might like to do when she starts school as she isn't interested in that which is fine.

    Would love to think outside the square and get your experiences - so far she has said she wouldn't mind gymnastics. She already swims.

    If she has the same hormones as me I need to find something that will keep her active into her teen years and loving it even though she is a slim child now.

    Football is great because they're so active, lots of girls play at our club and a lot of the bigger auskick centres are getting girls only teams too to encourage girls to play on
    Athletics is good because they'll find something they enjoy, but also it's great social interaction and the train a bit too so it's a lot of exercise.
    Basketball & netball are great because it's so much running and non stop.
