We have tried her on soccer balls, baseball, etc. in our backyard with no real interest on her part. She took swim classes all summer and was terrible at them (the most scared in her class, the most weepy, the least willing to put her face in, etc.), although she did actually go, which is something. She recently went to a kindergarten gymnastics birthday party and broke down in tears three times while the other twenty kids (mostly girls, all her age) cheerfully ran through the equipment. She is definitely scared of heights.
And while we thought kindergarten was sufficiently intensive that we didn't want to put her in any other classes right away, this trend is really worrying me, and I would like her to be more comfortable with her body and more confident in its capabilities.
I am thinking in January might be a good time to start a new physical class, but I'm not sure whether to put her in gymnastics (on the plus side, a friend of hers is in it, on the minus side, tears and no interest whatsoever), karate (which lots of folks have said good things about), or something else. (We'll almost certainly do swim again next summer.) Any advice would be very welcome. If we make a decision soon, then we'll have all of December to talk it up to her and try to get her excited about it.
