In brief: Depends...

Hemophilia is classified as mild, moderate, or severe.
Based on this, we can gauge the risk of participating in certain activities. Prophylaxis can also be given (regular doses of factor administered at a given interval) that can allow someone to participate in more rigorous activities (even soccer). Your child's hematologist can help guide you on the different options available.

In brief: Hemophilia

Yes, but it depends on many factors.
Certain activites that may expose the child to trauma are not allowed. The subject should be discussed with the child's physician to determ which activities the child will be allowed to participate in.
