1Hey Coach,
I'm afraid to play football because guys might laugh at me and I might get hurt. Please give me some advice.

Hey devilschild103,
Lots of girls play football, so don't be afraid of getting hurt or being made fun of. But, there are a few things you should think about. Football is a rough, contact sport where players tackle and push each other to the ground. Sometimes players get hurt. So, be prepared to get injured, but don't be afraid. Just like a dog can sense fear in someone who's scared of dogs, guys who play football can sense the fear in girls who step on the field and are afraid of getting hurt. Don't show any fear and the guys on the field are less likely to make fun of you. If you're still afraid of getting banged up or bruised, you should stick to playing pansy sports like volleyball or croquet.

Do you have a question on sports like hockey, football or skateboarding? Do you need some advice on fitness, P.E. class 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.

    Cheerleaders might just "hype up the team", but it still deserves to be called a sport. They're throwing each other in the air, performing possibly dangerous stunts, not even mentioning that they have to wear those skimpy outfits in freezing weather.

So it's not really a sport. It still looks fun though. Actually, cheerleaders do compete. There are cheer competitions.  Agree! 9o9
