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.

    It's definitely an American thing - here in Australia we have like no Cheerleaders or Cheerleading groups. I think it's a sport but I'm not really into it. I think any girls or boys can do it. :3
