    Does/did anyone's lad play football or Rugby at 3 yrs?

    I am struggling to find a football class or rugby class for my 3 yr old.
    Obviously I am not wanting him to go out and play main games or anything, I just want him to do a class of some sort to teach him discipline. It needs to be something with a ball ideally to keep him interested.
    Swimming is a no go area as he is scared at the moment.

    I find loads of dance classes for girls who start from 3, but hardly any classes for boys at 3 yrs old.

    Is this the same all over? or just near me?
    If your son did play at this age, what type of place did they pratice? Our Leisure center starts from 4 yrs, so not sure where else to look.

    Yes Discipline! lol Not expecting much off him, But he really enjoys it and wanting to teach him that when playing that sort of sport its not always his ball. It will also do him good to not constantly play with his mum and sisters. He needs to find his independence somewhere and this sort of thing would be great as it would be his time.
    He has a ball in garden, but it wouldn't be the same!

    I'm a football coach and do lots of classes for 3 year olds. Where are you based? Check with your local councils sports development and ask if they do any classes.

    Im in Swansea, Thank you for that tip I will call them on Monday see what they say. My husband thinks Rugby would be a bit heavy for him, at the moment, So football is probably the way ahead for him. Seems daft there is so much for little girls and hardly anything for boys.

    My little one could start most places at 4, Just want him to have a chance to do something boyish and get away from 2 sisters dressing him up in pink stuff all the time!
