7 year old son-how important is playing sports?

13 years ago

My son is turning 7 soon. He has not passionately expressed desire to play sports (who knows at age 5 or6?)and is lukewarm with the idea. How important is it to have him play? I don't see him particularly coordinated but then he does have great energy. What are your opinions? I was thinking soccer maybe? My sister has all three of her sons in it and she says if we don't get them in early than they will never really be as good as those who have played for years. Is that true? Does it matter? How many of your husbands played sports? Are they active now with sports? I am curious to see the responses!
