A new survey of children, ages 8-14, found most of them wanted to quit playing sports. The study was conducted by i9 Sports.
It found 47% of those wanted to quit because "it wasn't any fun." 29% say some of their teammates were mean. 23% say there were too many practices that interfered with other activities.
The study also doesn't look good for parents. 31% of kids wish adults weren't watching their games. The most common reason? Adults yell too much, are distracting, and put pressure on them.
42% of kids say they would rather play video games than play sports. When pressed for more details, 28% of them say sports are too competitive.
