In brief: Share alternatives

Sports are an easy way to keep kids active but not the only way.
A long walk touring a museum, zoo, the park, a neighborhood, etc. Can keep you both out & active. Look for activities she might enjoy bringing a friend along too. Creativity in thinking is one of the things that should define adulthood. This issue may require thought but could set up better bonding opportunities than most parents have.

Agree with Dr. Ferguson. Bicycling is sometimes not thought a sport when in fact it is plus excellent physical activity.. Having a pet dog who will require daily walks might be a viable consideration, provided it suits your lifestyle & daughter comits to this activity.
