4 Unique Youth Sports Kids Will Love, Ewa, Hawaii

When most parents sign their kids up for youth sports, they focus on traditional team sports like football or basketball. But these aren’t the only options available for kids. For those willing to try something a little different, individual sports can help build the skills team sports do.

Top 4 Unique Youth Sports for Kids

1. Judo

Derived from jujitsu, judo is a unique martial art that’s focused on maintaining your balance while trying to throw an opponent to the ground. No kicking or punching is involved in judo. Instead, throwing and grappling are the main physical focuses, while the sport also hones participants’ mental discipline. What seems simple at first glance typically involves the learning and application of several unique skills.

2. Boxing

wrestlingThis sport requires stamina and strength, making it an excellent form of exercise. The rigorous activity relieves stress while learning individual mechanics enforces discipline and patience. Boxing also teaches kids self-defense.

3. Dance

Dancing may not be the first activity that comes to mind when considering athletic options, but it qualifies as a sport in its own right. It requires the ability to memorize a complicated sequence of steps and moves. Stamina is also needed for some of the more rigorous dance varieties, such as hip hop and foxtrot. With different dance styles for a wide range of musical genres, there’s bound to be a dance that captures your child’s interest.

4. Wrestling

Kids learn self-defense while honing techniques for taking down an opponent. This activity has even helped professional football players develop better balance and control of their hands. Wrestling is also a fantastic way for kids to get out their extra energy!
