The Kidzworld Coach can help ya work out team problems or give ya tips and advice to improve your game - all ya gotta do is ask!


Hey Coach,

I LOVE basketball but my friends are so much better than I am! I'm really, really good at making shots but when we play a regular game, I can't do anything with the stupid ball! I love to play it and I have posters of the sport all over my room, but I just can't play. I can shoot but I can't play. Any ideas?

Hey Majela,

Don't sweat it if your game isn't that great. If you love to play b-ball, keep on playing and don't worry about how good you are. Most players have weaknesses in their game. Shaq can't shoot foul shots, Dikembe Mutumbo can't dribble and the entire Chicago Bulls team can't do much of anything - so don't worry if your game isn't that great. Keep on playing and eventually you'll get better.

Make sure you practice more than just shooting the ball and scoring. You should also practice dribbling, passing, rebounding and playing defence. Even if you don't score a lot, you'll still be an important part of the team if you can make a good pass or grab a loose rebound.

You can also improve your game by going to a basketball camp this summer. You can win a week at a summer basketball camp by entering the Harlem Globetrotters' Summer Basketball contest. Just click here to enter.

Do you have a question on sports, P.E. class, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.

Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!
