Do you have trouble hitting a baseball or catching a football? Do hockey goals, soccer nets and basketball hoops seem to jump out of the way when you try to score? Are you always picked last for teams, or feel like you'd be a shoo-in for a gold medal at the Klutz Olympics?

Boy doing karate If so, then it must mean you'll never be good at sports, right? WRONG.

There's a world of sports that don't require a coach, teammates, or a numbered uniform to play. Some don't even require equipment...just a little dedication and the desire to get out and have some fun!

Being athletic is about more than "winning" or hearing the cheers of the crowd. It's about doing something that makes you feel happy and confident, gives you a sense of accomplishment, and helps you stay physically fit. There's an athlete in everyone...it's just a question of finding it.

In this section, IML checks out some sports that don't require you to be on an organized team. You'll learn what they're all about, why they're fun and good for you, and how to get involved. You'll even hear from kids who participate in and love these activities. So keep reading...you may just discover the sport that's perfect for you.
