On To Sport

Encourage children from  when they are young, start them early. Lead them from behind - don't tell them they should take up sport, spend time with them in playing outdoor games. But, most importantly, don't ever force them into doing anything, else they will take dislike to sporting activities.

While you can start them off with swimming (one of the many sporting activities) at a very early age, once they join school, encourage them to participate in regular sports activies. Be there to cheer them when they are participating in any school sport activity and if they don't win any prizes, don't discourage them by critcizing them.
