Quiz the Coach :: Football for Girls

Hey Coach,


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


Donut


Dear Donut,


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

Football CampFootball Camp

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 For AllFootball For All

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
  • Scholarships
  • Leadership opportunities
  • Game Experiences are exciting
  • Friendships and Fun

Coaching Counts

Coach CareCoach Care

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.

I do dabbing and like to toast bread. 4 time MVP all star dabber, named to the USA dabbing national team. I also toast some mean bread and have 100 Michelin Stars. I also play cricket on a horse, water polo on jellyfish, and do underwater hockey. Nothing too big
