Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are doing the right thing getting their 4-year-old involved in sports at an early age. And little Seraphina should start soon, too!

With action hero parents, it’s only natural that some of that athletic ability would be passed down to Violet Affleck, and she demonstrated some fancy footwork on the weekend when she and her parents, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, and little sister Seraphina hit an LA park for soccer training.

Experts say Jen and Ben are doing the right thing getting their 4-year-old involved in sports at such a young age.

“At four, kids start to learn the rules of soccer, and develop their balance and coordination,” says Julianne Spohrer, the early childhood education director at Super Soccer Stars. “It also teaches them socialization and how to play as part of a team.” In fact, Seraphina could join her big sis in a few months, since many soccer programs begin teaching kids as early as 2.

It looks it might be hard to keep Seraphina off the soccer field as she had a blast kicking the ball around with Dad!
