The start of a new academic year is right around the corner and the beginning of the fall sports season. Soon, parents will be confronted with purchasing the yearly supply haul of school supplies and enrolling their children in their favorite autumn sports. Whether your child loves to play the same sport repeatedly or wants to try something new in autumn, the accompanying marks are excellent choices.

The #GlobalAssociationofInternationalSportsFederations GAISF divides sports into five categories for its participant federations. A sport, like any other, may not fit neatly into any specific category, with many fitting into even more than one.

· Physical (e.g., rugby, athletics)

· Mind comes first (e.g., chess, go)

· Primarily powered by motors as car racing

· Initially, coordination (e.g., billiards)

· Primarily animal-aided (e.g., equestrian)
