I understand your concern. He is four years old now is it not. For one more year allow him to play as much as he can outdoors. On weeks a take him to the park if possible. Free play is very important now. From the age of five or six you can introduce him to a sport. It can be something he likes. Do remember children do not like the rigid discipline of sports coaching so they may want to quit. Hence have a verbal agreement that he would play the sport for one year. It takes that much time to get used. If he likes he may continue. After a year to you can always change to another sport. Learning any sport is good. Playing instills sportsmanship qualities, leadership, problem solving, time management, deep practice, team play etc into a child. So any sport is alright. All the best
