X’s Sports Progress Card

Slightly less than 2 years’ ago, I penned down Z’s Sports Progress Card.

When Z was 2.75 years’ old, he could pedal very well on his 12″ bicycle.
*X to clear at 2.5 years’ old
Update: X was able to do half-pedals at less than 2 years’ old and eventually picked it up at nearly 3 years’ old, read here and here.

When Z was 3.5 years’ old, he joined Aqua Ducks’ swimming class.
*Z’s instructor requested for us to coach X on breathing and kicking and to send him to Swimfast at 4 years’ old. Well, not quite sure if we could master X’s water confidence by ourselves!
Update: X refused to join the swimming lessons at 3 years’ old, despite having some confidence, and eventually picked up some strokes on his own at 3 years old.

When Z was 3.75 years’ old, he joined Shaw’s Little League’s Multi Sports Class.
*X to skip this and join Z’s school for soccer at 3 years’ old.
Update: He did not like the group lessons initially and eventually joined Z at the same soccer academy at 3.5 years’ old.

When Z was 4.25 years’ old, he was able to scoot & balance on 2 wheels.
*If you noticed, Z had never scooted on a 3-wheeler scooter before because Mr H was so paranoid about it! But X was able to fly on his 3-wheel scooter from 1.5 years’ old onwards.
Update: X started experimenting with a 2-wheel scooter at 3 years 1 month old. At 4.25 years’ old, he was finally getting better at it. I had to say height made a difference. 

When Z was 4.5 years’ old, he was able to cycle & balance on 2 wheels.
Update: X started to cycle & balance at 4.25 years’ old.

When Z was 4.5 years’ old, he switched from a multi-sports course to International Soccer Academy’s soccer class.
Update: Not applicable, as he had been with the soccer academy since 3.5 years’ old.

When Z was 4.5 years’ old, he switched from kiddy swimming to Swimfast for mainstream swimming class.
Update: X joined Swimfast at 4.25 years’ old.

When Z was 4.75 years’ old, we began to coach him on tennis personally.
Update: We coached him at 3.5 years’ old and by 4.25 years’ old, he could actually hit some balls.

When Z was 5.5 years’ old, he joined Inlinex’s roller skating class.
Update: X mastered rollerblading at 3.5years’ old. 

When Z was turning 6 years’ old, he picked up ice skating.
Update: X ice-skated at a month to turning 3 years’ old.

When Z was turning 6 years’ old, he picked up skiing and hit the black slopes at age of 7.
Update: X skied pretty well at a month to turning 4 years’ old.

In the pipeline for the next 2 years:

When Z was 5.25 years’ old, we began to coach him on badminton personally.
Update for X – TBC

When Z was 5.25 years’ old, he joined a nearby community centre’s wushu class. 
Update for X – TBC

When Z was turning 7 years’ old, he learned snowboarding.
Update for X – TBC

Looking back, I thought we did pretty well with X, or more like X had been pretty athletic.
