Quiz the Coach

Hey Coach,
Ok, so I play soccer on a team with my friends. We play games every Saturday. My Mom comes to all our games and is always yelling at everyone. She yells at the ref, the coach, the players and everyone else for the whole game. I can always hear her voice in my ear every time I'm on the field. What should I do? By the way in case you didn't guess - I HATE IT!

Hey Kickgirl,
Sounds like your Mom really gets into watching your games - but she's getting TOO excited. Explain to your mom that your games aren't as fun when she's yelling all the time. It's tough to have your best moves when you keep hearing the same loud voice all the time (almost as annoying as dancing to a CD that skips.) Ask her to cheer when your team scores or after you make a good play - not when the ref makes a bad call, or when she doesn't like what the coach is doing. You could also try buying her a candy bar or a bag of chips before the game. There's no way she would chew food and talk at the same time.

Hey Coach,
I'm on a baseball team and I'm really good. But there's this one guy on my team who plays in the outfield and he stinks. He never catches the ball and he can hardly throw. He strikes out a lot too. I wish he wasn't on the team.

Hey Homerun2002,
Well, you're not playing in the pros yet, so you can't just trade your teammate to the Yankees for Jason Giambi. You're stuck with him so try making the best of it. If he really bites that bad, help him out. Show him how to catch the ball properly or give him some tips on hitting. Make your teammate better. Look at Michael Jordan. He's stuck with a bunch of slugs on the Wizards who are always laying bricks or losing the ball. But MJ doesn't complain, he tries to make his teammates better. If you can make your teammates better, you'll be a better player yourself.

Gotta question for the Coach about sports, fitness or life? Then to Kidzworld.

    CHEERLEADING IS LIKE DANCE GYMNASTICS MIXED TOGETHER WITH WORDS. AND DANCE AND GYMNASTICS ARE CONSIDERED SPORTS.
