1Hey Coach,
I was trying to grind this bench outside the Dollar Store and I landed in this funky way and my knee has been killing me ever since. What should I do?

Hey manunitedkid,
You need to do a couple of things. If your knee's killing you, go see a doctor. It may just be badly bruised but it could be something more serious and you don't want to jeopardize your promising skateboarding career. Secondly, you should learn how to grind a bench without landing in a funky way that makes your knee hurt. Whenever you're trying grinds, or any other skateboard tricks that are a bit difficult, you're going to have your share of wipeouts. If you're doing a trick that you're not familiar with, wear knee pads, a helmet and other protective gear (you may even be able to buy some at the Dollar Store where you're hanging out.)

Do you have a question on basketball, football, skateboarding, injuries, fitness or anything else to do with sports? 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.
