Sports That Are Great For Kids

Grace Robbins, Writer

There are many sports that kids love to play, but some of them are aggressive and dangerous for children.

 

Some of the most popular sports for kids are soccer, baseball, softball, basketball, volleyball, and football. Football is not a good sport for kids. It is rough and can cause bad injury. Since tackling is very involved in this sport, it can make people who play have a high risk of injury. 

 

Instead of playing tackle football, a better sport would be flag football. It is a better option because tackling is not allowed. Usually, the teams are of 5-8 players who all work together for one goal- trying to score points by moving the ball down the field and crossing the goal line. 

 

Another sport that is great for kids is volleyball. This is because it does not involve a lot of physical contact between players. The only thing that players have to hit is the ball. This makes it safe and enjoyable for kids.
