Do kids burn out from sports that start young?


My wife are considering letting our five year old daughter play competitive soccer. Our only concern is she has lots of time to play (even if she wants to now) and by starting so young it burns her out. Are there stats on burnout based on when a kid begins playing?

    That's a great comment. I was wondering if kids have a certain number of playing years in them, and no matter what age they start at, do they typically play a certain number of years. Or do kids that start early play longer or shorter on avg?
