Is it better to start your training as early as possible if you want to become a professional sport player? For example, if you want to become a soccer/football player, do you want to start training when you are 3 years old?

Simply put, the earlier you start playing a sport, the more likely it is that you will build the skils required to become a professional player.

However, and this is a big however:
Children should be focused on skills improvement and given the opportunity to have fun, not just in one sport but in many. Winning and competition should not be the focus at an early age. They should absolutely not be pushed into physical trainig that is beyond their physical development.

I've underlined playing in my first sentence, because if as a child you are not playing when you do sport (i.e. treating it as a career), you probably won't be in the sport long enough to reap the rewards of a professional career.

The 10, 000 hour rule implies that it takes 10 years or 10,000 hours of deliberate practice to become an 'expert' or elite performer. While this 'rule' has been taken too literally by many, and (as has been stated) people develop at different rates, it also implies that the earlier you can start developing relevant skills the better (all other things being equal). However, relevant skills can be gained through many different means and sports, and not just the sport that you end up playing as a professional - for example hand-eye co-ordination, balance etc.
