So ya dig sports but need some help with your game? Don't understand some of the rules of football, basketball or soccer? Got a gripe about P.E. class, teammates or coaches, or anything? Why not ? 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!

1 Hey Coach,
The players on a rival baseball team know my team is a heck of a lot better than them and they know my dad's my hero so they say, "You'll be just like your dad - a coward and a failure." I stand up for my dad but it doesn't matter, they don't stop. What can I do to make them stop without getting disqualified?

Hey SmartSpy86,
It won't be easy to make the players on the other team stop insulting your dad because they obviously enjoy doing it. Those guys know they can't beat you on the field, so they figure they may as well have some fun by making fun of you and your dad. So here are three ways you can deal with them.

Fight Fire With Fire - If they can hurl insults at you and your dad, you can throw your best zingers right back at them. What's stopping you? Tell the other players that you heard their dads like to eat crap or that their moms are all on display as circus freaks. If a pitcher hits a batter with a pitch in the pros, the batter charges the mound. You may have to do the same.

Play Dead - Pretend you don't even hear what they're saying. If they don't see you getting angry, the players on the other team may get bored of insulting you and your dad and find some other way to amuse themselves.

The Crying Game - This is the least recommended plan - but it may work. The next time the other team makes fun of your dad, burst into tears and start crying like a little baby girl. Make up a story about how your dad is confined to a wheelchair and has to support your family by making crafts out of popsicle sticks. Some of the players may feel bad about making you cry (although I doubt it) and will stop saying mean things. If they don't stop on their own, their coach will probably tell them to pipe down.

1Hey Coach,
How many points is one basket worth?
HOTBOY912

Hey HOTBOY912,
In most basketball games at the school, college and pro level, a field goal is worth two points, unless the ball is shot from behind the three-point line - then it's worth three points. Foul shots are worth one point. In games of street ball, all baskets are usually worth one point.

Do you have a question on sports, P.E. class, rules to sports, 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.
