Which sport(s) should my younger brother consider if he wants to be in sports for a living in the future?
My brother is 5 year old and he is very much fond of sports. It looks like he will make a good sports person. right now he hasn't shown any signs of liking any particular sport. But he is very agile and always in a play mood. What sport should he go for? sports football basketball athletics athlete fitness cricket
He is only 5.. Let him just have fun with sports, I mean any kind of sports.. Do not force him.. It will come naturally!!
Identify the games/sport event which he is able to play, showcase his abilities and win with ease.
Speak to him about his interest in such sports once he is exposed to them, appreciate and encourage him to follow and practice those specific sports.
Provide opportunity for him to learn the techniques and train under the guidance of the specific sport's coach.
As sports carrier completely depends upon the individual's interest and capability it is on the parents/teachers to identify what is the best of any individual.
With the launch of ISL, football has also become a good career option in India. If you are skilled enough, you can make a good fortune if you get selected to play for a franchise in ISL.
First you need to identify which sport your brother is good at and need to get him into a good sports school which gives equal importance for academic education and developing sporting skills. Be mindful that an average sports person, earns until his mid thirteens. Education is vital for a career after your playing career is over. Ofcourse coaching is another option once playing career is over.
Any sports. It also matters the place you are currently living and what sports your country and marketing invests in. Like in India, they invest lot of money in cricket compare to hockey and soccer while other countries like US. invests in American football. I am a huge fan of soccer aka football. And it is the one of the most popular sports in the world. I think it will be great if he plays different types of sports and finds which one he really likes and grow from there. Hope this helps !
OK Karan, the first thing you need to know is...does he really love to do sport?
Or that's just your wish?
I know that almost every American guys like sports, from Rugby to Running.
If you wish him get health from sports, go hiking. If you wish him get a good habit from sports, go play baseball. If you wanna make money from him by sports, go play basketball.
But Karan, those are MY suggestion.
Chatting with him, talking with him, and then listen to the opinion from himself.
I always trust that sports can makes a man, sports can makes money, but the most important thing is... sports makes people HAPPY.
Good luck. :D
I want my son to play for INDIA ,he is only 1 year old :)
I will create opportunities for him to play Cricket , Hockey and other sports too and let him decide when he grown up.
There are many sports played here like cricket, hockey, football, Tennis, Badminton or any other one.
As he is just 5 years old, give me chance to decide what he likes.
Any sport that he chooses in future based on his interest would be good for him.
