1Hey Coach,
I am 13 and Avril Lavigne is my role model. I know she skateboards and I wanna learn but my mom and dad won't let me get a board. They say it's too dangerous. How can I convince them?

Hey Sk8erFreak13,
Convincing your parents to let you do something they don't want you to do can be harder than convincing your teachers that they shouldn't give you homework. But, give it your best shot. Explain to your 'rents that you're really passionate about skating. It's better for you than spending your time watching television or hanging out at the mall. You could also point out to them that skateboarding isn't actually that dangerous. More kids are injured each year riding their bike, playing baseball or shooting hoops. If you wear the proper safety equipment (helmet, knee pads and wrist guards) and be careful, skateboarding can be as safe - or safer - than any other sport. You should also know that Avril Lavigne doesn't actually skateboard that well (and some people would argue she doesn't sing that well either,) so you may want to look for another skater role model, such as Vanessa Torres or Tony Hawk.

1Hey Coach,
My P.E. teach is a basketball fanatic. I've been in his class for two years now and I think we've played soccer twice and hockey a couple of times and all the rest of the time we play basketball. How do I get him to stop making us play basketball? I want to play other sports!

Hey PuNKeR_RoCKeR_5,
Your teacher should be teaching you a wide variety of sports and exercises, not just basketball. The best thing you can do is talk to your P.E. teacher and ask him why you can't play other sports more often. Talk to other kids in your class and ask them to speak to the teacher as well. Keep in mind that he may not have a choice. For example, there may not be enough fields available for soccer or there might not be enough equipment available to play hockey. If your teacher doesn't give you a satisfactory answer, then talk to your principal, or another P.E. teacher, and let them know what you think.

Do you have a question on sports, skateboards, skateboarding, fitness, P.E. class, rules to sports or health concerns? 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.

    Cheer leading, I think, is not a sport. I mean the girls who are cheer leaders never go are the girls teams but never miss a team where there are boys. So if it was a sport then shouldn't they cheer for all the students who are play a certain game where cheer leading is needed/allowed? Maybe in some schools it is a sport but in most, it isn't. -_-'

    I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.
