Recommend any Sports for 11 year old daughter?

Hi, my daughter has erbs palsy since birth and it breaks my heart to see her go through any struggles. I try to encourage her to do everything she wants but she gets discouraged with sports sometimes. She's played soccer, volleyball and we're considering tennis. She has a hard time with subination and external shoulder rotation. She has the winging in the shoulder blade. I'm wondering if anyone has tried a sport they or their child felt good about and strived in? Thank you everyone for sharing your stories, it is encouraging to connect with others going through this.

Hi ananda,
My daughter is 11 and right Erb's and we also have encouraged her to participate in the sports she loves... She is active in soccer and dance and swimming has been very helpful to strengthen her range of motion. I've also researched activities and Karate was encouraged and yoga.

Best of luck
