Sounds a bit like me when I was that age (although I had to play rugger in school). My late father was a scout master, I swam, took judo lessons and once I hit 13 I joined the ATC so that I could fly planes and shoot guns! A busy childhood is a happy childhood IMHO.
James will start rugby and hockey when he gets to secondary school in September. My dad was a rugby player.
The homework will pile on in heaps come September, as well!
Let me know if you have any questions if you decide to go with a sewn kite. Happy to help out if I can.
Sewing is my skill area, so sewn kites I will be happy with. I'll certainly shout if I need help. The fabric I dug out of the loft turns out to be light weight anorak fabric with waterproof coatings, but failed to be rip-stop. However, I dare say it will do to start with while I hunt up a cheap and cheerful supply of rip-stop in the right weights. Non sewn kites and the spars and stuff will be dad's department. :)
