If your grandkids are pre-teens or teens, they most likely are interested in the world of sports. They love to play soccer or rugby, they love to watch others play, and they also enjoy reading about their favourite sports celebrities. An added bonus to interacting with great sports websites is the amount of reading it takes to get around the sites. Kids will be reading and gathering information without even being aware of the learning taking place. Here are the best sports websites for kids.

There are facts and photos, videos of highlights, kid-powered interviews of sport celebrities and blogs related to all things sport.
