Keep him active either way, another sport is good to develop different muscles and motor skills. My son did spring hockey for quite a few years, we noticed that spring hockey was for players that wanted more out of hockey than winter, the commitment level was much higher. We never had to push either, it was his choice but he usually did some other sport, usually football and then golf. Fortunately for you your spring season ends in May and the winter season doesn't start until late Sept. We started late Aug and spring hockey ended in late June and sometimes into July. This did not go well with 4 football practices and school.

Anyways, don't push as he needs to want to do it, which appears to be the case here. And ultimately you have to make a family decision taking into siblings commitments and parents time as well.
