Default What professional sport is the easiest to get into?

I'm having a kid pretty soon and I want him to be a professional athlete. I feel it's the best life to have in the world, money, women, doing something you love, off-season breaks, all that shit. And as the parent, I'll be able to get into some of that action.

I got the genetics bit covered. I'm a fairly athletic person(white), played a bunch sports though child-hood. The mother of the child played basketball and track in college and is half-black, so the kid will surely have the physical ability part down. I want to get this kid started young and since me and his mum don't have a lot of money we can't get him started into shit like hockey or horse-riding.

So, I've decided on Basketball or Football(not american handegg). Baseball is a possibility also since you can go pro straight from high-school but it's fairly expensive. Obviously height and how much of the black genes seep though is going to be a major factor in basketball so I'm leaning towards football until I can see how his height plays out. I'm looking to get some traveling out of the kid also, so heading over to Europe for Basketball and football will be a MAJOR plus. So, which would be easier for him to get into, professional soccer in Europe or professional Basketball in Europe? How much do professional Basketball players in Europe make?

Don't pick baseball. You would think Baseball would be easy to break into, there are so many teams, so many players, 50 players drafted per year, five minor league levels, but it isn't. The minor wash out rate is ridiculous, the majority of the players drafted never make it to the show.

Note: Do not enforce heavy weight training until he's past puberty, one of my friends is an insane gymnast and he was super jacked from at least the age of 8, now he's really short. It's probably part genetic, but his brother is at least 6" taller. He's been training like 20 hrs/week his whole life, got him into west point

I would think something like professional water polo would be fairly easy to get into.

An obscure winter olympic "sport" would be the easiest; the representatives for some seem to be the only practitioners.

And as far as I'm aware, there isn't any professional basketball in Europe. Well, maybe in France or Spain, but no one really cares.

Sir Rolf states Professional Wrestling, all you need is a fake tan, tights and a wish to be laughed at incessantly when visiting foreign countries that are not Canada or England.

To be a pro football player you need to be an insane physical specimen. That's not just saying you need to be 'athletic', but you need to be a freak. It's not very likely that your kid will be blessed with meeting the requirements of an NFL draft combine. Maybe CFL - but they only make ~$100000/yr or less.

Basketball you need to be at least 6'5", unless you're Steve Nash, which he likely won't be.


Keep in mind that in order for your kid to make the sacrifices that are needed to become a professional athlete, he will need to passionately love what he's doing. So in that sense, it doesn't matter what you start him out in, the decision will ultimately be his.




PS: Save up and get the little fucker in hockey.

You are going into parenting with the wrong mindset.

money is not worth much and women in this case just means sex, which is worth less than money.

Yeah I have to agree with L33tz. But if you are looking for something to get them in to as a profesional athlete try to get them to go towards MMA. Start them out doing something like Taekwondo at an early age. Have them get in to wrestling. After they get a good knowledge of Taekwondo maybe have them start to train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. But that's going to take alot of money, time, and detirmination. Just encourage them to do sports if they start to really like a sport get them to do extra stuff for it.

Why don't you be a real parent and not live through your child?

Team him a bunch of sweet cons that he can pull off, then send him to the streets. He won't earn at the same volume, but it will pay off wayyyyy sooner.
