English term or phrase: play every sport in every season
Hi,
I think I've understood the overall meaning of "every sport in every season" in the sentence below - that is this child loves all kinds of sport - but I was wondering whether there are some specific nuances...

*****
It was immediately apparent that his passion was athletics.
He wanted to play ** every sport in every season**

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you so much, Phil! I was actually missing a part of the meaning... I thought it was somewhat an "idiomatic" expression. Now I understand the sentence better... "in ogni stagione" is right or maybe "ogni sport a prescindere dalla stagione", "qualunque fosse la stagione"..but I'll think over that..
