Yes, let the child decide, but let the child guide you as well...If he / she asks for it...let him / her do it. My child, did "Bulletjie Rugby" last year, so, with games, he cried and wanted mommy on the field.. So this year, I've let him do music & Action Ball, which he adores doing dearly...but, when the rugby started, he came crying "die oom wil my nie laat speel nie, want Mamma het nie 'n vormpie geteken en betaal nie"... So, what do you do.. Remember, they do the sport at their level... And mine is Gr 00 (RR), going to R next year. Two of his nieces are playing netball, the one being Gr R this year, the other one Gr 1, and I remember my primary days, I could wait for Std 1 as in those days, to start doing sport, other than athletics - kids do like it..
