I think that at that age, he should be allowed to just kick the ball around for fun. But I think that he is too young to start any formal training. My daughter has a couple of friends that have been in competitive gymnastics most of their lives. And I feel really sorry for these kids. They no longer have fun doing what they used to love. They aren't allowed to be kids because they are always training. And what time they aren't training, they are in school. I'm not saying that you would treat your son like this, but it is easy to get caught up in it. If you do let him start training, just remember to let him have fun. Don't let the coach forget that he is 3 years old.
