What's your game?

Sport has so much to offer - and with such a huge range available your child will probably want to try more than one!

Our guides provide tips and advice on each activity, details on equipment guides - plus links to more in-depth information and your nearest club.

Sport boosts kids' esteem, keeps them healthy, teaches them teamwork. And lets them dream.

If your child isn't into team sports, athletics could well be the sport for them. There's something for everyone.
Rugby Union
England's World Cup triumph has helped make rugby union more popular than ever. There's room for as many girls as boys.
There's all sorts of dance styles, all of which are excellent exercise and a great way of making friends.
On your bike
Despite being one of the most popular kids' pursuits, only 2% of children cycle to school in Britain.
