Sports for my adhd son


[deleted account]

A team sport may be too much stimulation. An individual sport like karate, gymnastics, or swimming may be better suited for your son. However, every child is an individual. It might take several attempts at different sports to determine what he likes best.

Even though my son is not ADD, we still ran the gamut of trying everything: gymnastics, baseball, basketball, football, and karate. It turns out that my son LOVES karate more than anything else, and has been committed for the past year and a half. He has advanced a few ranks already, competed in tournaments, and happens to be quite good. But, we needed to test out a few other sports firs to see what he liked. Good luck to you!
