My DS just turned 6. He has Beavers on a Thursday and swimming on a Saturday. Hasn't asked to do anything else and to be honest for him it's plenty.

Ben does football after school one day, and beavers another. I do need to get him to swimming lessons but I don't drive and the ones local to me are on FOBs days. I will figure it out next year though!

DS goes to basketball on Saturdays & Mondays, music on Sundays & fitness on tuesdays in addition to Quran reciting private lesson on Sunday evening.

But this will change next semester. He will go back to swimming classes during the break

Josh does multi sports after school every Thursday. He does creative club each time they do one - its not a constant thing, they generally do it over special times of the year (Mother's Day, Easter, etc)

Swimming starts when he goes to year 3, so I really need to start taking him before hand or its not going to go down well at all

Where I am dance classes start at age 3 (the 3 different academies that I know of anyway), swimming starts at age 3. My DD (3.5) does gymnastics (she's been going since she was about 18 months but her current class is for children aged 3.5 - 5yr olds) and swimming.

Try searching for "baby ballet" or ring local dance schools. Lots have dance classes for little ones. My dd has done ballet since she was 3 & she's been swimming since she was born- we've just moved up the stages and now she goes without me. Gymnastics is 4+ at our local leisure centre.

DS age 6 does taekwondo and gymnastics. Taekwondo I enrolled him in without asking as it is good for fitness and discipline. He does really enjoy it and, when he is a bit older, we'll look at sparring and competing. Gymnastics he asked off his own back and begged for months; he's never looked back and will proudly tell you that he will be the next Max Whitlock.

He used to swim but I felt group lessons weren't doing much for him. I swam competitively and now take him myself.

My dd's best friend does street dance & there are loads of boys in her class & two male teachers who are brilliant role models. Her mum phoned round local dance schools & went along to one she liked. I'd do the same if I were you.

The reason I didn't choose street dance, even though dd really wanted to go with her friend, is because the school she goes to attends lots of competitions - both group & individual. It's a big part of the lessons and comps are an all day thing once every few months. I didn't want my dd doing comps at this age so chose a different dance route. Just something to consider if you're ringing around. (No judgement of people who do choose to do comps, it's just my dd's personality doesn't suit it just now).
