My kids are in about six different sports ;-) Ultimately it comes down to what you as a parent feel is appropriate for him given his age and skill set, and if you're still not sure I would try to get "clearance" from your pediatrician. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions or you need me to clarify anything. Please also submit a rating if you're satisfied with your assistance; this will not cost you anything extra but it's the only way we get credit for assisting you. And please don't feel like we have to stop talking after you submit a rating. I'd be more than happy to continue working with you after that as well.
I just submitted a request for you...
The following exercises are okay for his age.
Carefully supervised strength training is OK at age 7 or 8, too.
You just make an appointment with the doctor and take your son to him/her. Then you should talk to him/her about it. I think after s/he examines him, s/he will say the activities are okay if he doesn't have any problems.
