So ya dig sports but need some help with your game? Don't understand some of the rules of football, basketball or hockey? Got a gripe about P.E. class, skateboarders, cheerleading, coaches, or anything? Why not ?

1Hey Coach,
Kids at school make fun of me because I am short and way overweight. I mean, you can see the rolls of fat through my shirt! How can I exercise when I have absolutely NO FREE TIME and the first dance is coming up in a few weeks? No one will want to dance with the fat kid.

Dear aragornrox

Dude, you're talking like one of those crusty, old parents. According to your email, you're 14, so I'm betting you don't have a full-time job and kids to take care of. So, why are you so busy and what are you busy doing that doesn't involve some exercise?

The best part about being a kid is getting to spend Saturdays goofing off in the park with friends or taking cool classes, like karate, while your parents pay for 'em. There is no magic cure to lose weight - it's just plain, old exercising and eating right. Find a sport or activity that gets your heart rate up and you'll probably shed those extra pounds. Since you obviously like dancing, why not take dance class? And as for peeps who pick on ya because you're short or overweight - they aren't worth your time.

Do you need tips or advice on sports, fitness 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.

    "FBGirl" wrote:I like cheerleading, but definitely NOT a sport! Sports are physical activity with competition and GEAR. The closest thing cheerleaders have to gear are pom-poms. And, yeah. Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!

All cheerleaders and coaches put A LOT of effort and time into making and practicing cheers. It is true that cheerleaders turn people and the players on...but it's much more than that. it's about having fun, teamwork, having some more fun, getting some exercise (uh that kinda makes it a sport right?), and great times with the other girls on your squad.   Rant over lol
