Sports / Clubs

Do you make your children engage in sports or clubs? I'm having trouble making my 14-year-old daughter get involved in clubs. She used to swim and likes photography, but lately she just wants to come home right after school and lock herself in her room.

Do you other parents out there force them? Or do your kids join willingly?
In my family it was mandatory to be in a club or play a sport. With my daughters I have not made it mandatory but there are rules about spending time outside (weather permitting of course). They must play outside on weekends for a few hours during the week it all depends on homework. My rule regarding sports and clubs should they want to join is that they must be in it for the entire season. No trying out getting accepted and realizing a few weeks in you don't want to do it. I think it is important for them to learn to be part of the team and quitting would be letting their team down.
