i think kids at any age should play sports so it can help them develope those skills which they could use later on to get scholarships.


Kids should not play ALL sports at any age. Some sports are too dangerous for young children to play. Children should be allowed to start developing certain skills to play sports at an even younger age than children should play the actual sport. However, when you say 'kids at ANY age should play sports' this argument is simply invalid. Should a child that is 9 months old play soccer or basketball or any sport at all for that matter? Of course the answer is clearly NO. A little less clear would be the debate of a 5 year old, but should a 5 year old play full-contact tackle football (as some in fact do)? I would argue the safety of the 5 year old is at risk of damage that could affect the rest of his or her life. The aggressive nature of a sport like football can lead to concussions, broken bones, etc. The same would go for a sport like hockey or even more aggressive sports like boxing or MMA. Additionally, there are a multitude of other more extreme sports that only a much older child or adult should partake in such as tree-skiing, or rock-climbing.
