He's young, but he definitely has skills. Although he might not grow up to be a NBA superstar, playing sports for fun can affect children in so many positive ways.
The most obvious benefit of athletics is a healthy body. With more children than ever being classified as overweight, teaching children to be active from the get-go builds an important foundation for a healthy life.
