Quiz the Coach :: Football for Girls
Hey. Sup? I'm a girl. This year I want to pay tackle football. I'm really good. Is it a good idea for me to play? Thanks
That’s great that you want to join football. I used to play football and I know that it can be very scary at first, so it’s good that you are concerned. There are probably no football leagues for girls where you live and that means you have to play with the boys, right? Well, don’t let that scare you off…
Testing Before Tryouts
It’s important that you test your strength before tryouts. You should go to a football camp before you tryout for any football team. A football camp will teach you how to properly tackle and get hit so that you don’t hurt yourself. Football camps have many experienced coaches that will let you know if you are ready for the real thing.
Getting in the Game
Football is a great game and no one should be left out because of their gender. Here are some of the benefits you can get from playing on a football team:
- Learning about Teamwork
- Practices are amazing workouts
- Leadership opportunities
- Game Experiences are exciting
- Friendships and Fun
Your football coach will be the biggest factor on whether or not football is a good idea for you. The coach has to make sure that you are safe and it is his responsibility to make sure you are ready to tryout for the team. Talk to the football coach and ask him or her what he or she thinks.
