is it moral to pressure your child to pursue a hockey career?

My kid's 2.5. He absolutely loves whatever his dad loves, which includes playing hockey. There's no pressure for him to play, actually he makes me play knee hockey in the house all the time!
Once he gets older, I'd encourage him to play, at least shinny or pond hockey in the winter time. My parents always signed me up for every sport and made me play growing up, and I hated all sports, including hockey. That's because my parents didn't like or watch sports so why would I?
There is a time though I believe you have to give your kids some structure and direction. Not pushing them or being demanding or yelling, but making sure they display some dedication and effort.
