To help ensure your kids stay in sports and enjoy the many benefits: Be sure to separate your dreams from your child’s. Sometimes parents have different ideas about what they want from their child’s sports experience. These ideas can undermine their child’s experience. 
Keep your expectations in check. Kids often take on your expectations as their own, and if they don’t achieve them, lose confidence.
Help kids manage their own expectations. If a young athlete begins a basketball game expecting to score 24 points, he’s likely to feel frustrated and disappointed.
Choose coaches and teams carefully. Be sure to interview potential coaches about their philosophy. It’s best, especially when children are younger, if coaches focus more on skill-building and on having fun than on winning.

Football or Soccer?
Football or Soccer?Sports are more than a game; they are a set of life lessons. Kids growing up without them are really disadvantaged. Kids who participate in sports attend school more, are more community and civic minded, get in less trouble, and tend to be more successful in the workplace. Sport teaches youngsters to work together; they acquire leadership skills, get a sense of discipline and learn communication skills.
