Top Ten Best Sports for Kindergarteners – Team Sports
Here is our list of the best sports for kindergarteners who want to play a team sport. There’s no better way to get your child to exercise and learn to interact with other kids than getting them involved in a team sport. As your kids enter kindergarten, getting them involved in team sports is a great way for them to meet other kids and learn to use their bodies. It’s also a great way to meet other parents and get out of the house.

Now I know gymnastics is not much of a team sport for kindergarteners. At that age your kids will practice with other kids & learn to jump, tumble & stretch their bodies. In this sport they learn balance & coordination that will help them in other sports as well.
Swimming is one of the best sports for kindergarteners because learning to swim is one of those things that everybody should know how to do. Have you ever seen an adult learning how to swim? Get them started swimming at a very young age and your summers will be lots of fun at a pool or beach. Once they get into kindergarten, a summer or winter swim team is an option.
Tennis is a great sport for your kindergarten-age kid. Tennis lessons & joining a tennis team will teach them hand-eye coordination and build up their arm & leg muscles. Many places have tennis courts you can use on the weekends so the parents can get involved too.
7. Ice Hockey
One of the best sports for kindergarteners is ice hockey. Once your kids learns how to skate, they will absolutely love to play hockey. Since ice time is often difficult to get, you may end up practicing very early in the morning or late at night. Ice hockey is certainly not a cheap sport to get involved in either. If your kid starts playing in kindergarten and gets good at ice hockey, they will have many opportunities to play at higher levels.
6. Field Hockey
For girls, field hockey is a great sport to start playing in kindergarten. Your kid will love being outside running around & will get great physical fitness. Field hockey will teach your kid about team sports, positioning, offense, defense & build hand-eye coordination. My daughter met lots of friends on her field hockey team and it’s a sport you can keep playing as you get older.
