Q: Why do children quit playing sports?
The main reason children say they quit is because they don’t have the skills to play.
They feel “useless” or “pathetic”. They get laughed at or harshly criticized.
You can prevent that from happening by making sure that your child is learning the right skills at the right time and in the right way.
That way they are progressing naturally and at their own pace, which will give them the physical confidence they need to stay involved and to try new things.
