Quiz the coach helps teen and tweens with sports and fitness related issues and problems like obesity, healthy eating questions, skateboard tricks and P.E. dilemmas. - Page 2

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,
I tried out for this Under 12 select basketball team in my town, and I made the top 17 out of 32. The team could only have 12 players and last night I went to the practice, tried my butt off and they cut me. They said I could come back and practice with them every week and if someone can't make a game for any reason I MIGHT be able to fill in. But, it still sucks because my two friends made it and whole lot of others that I knew as well and I didn't.

Should I still practice with them or not?

Hey baller18

Getting cut from a team, but being invited to keep practicing, definitely sucks. It's like getting dumped by your BF or GF and being asked if you want to still "be friends." You still have to put in the effort but you don't get the reward of the "big game action". Lots of players in the NBA and NFL spend the whole season practicing with the team without playing in any games (mind you, it's a lot easier to sit on the bench with a clipboard and pick your nose when you're getting paid millions of dollars.)

I'd try practicing with the team for a few weeks to see how it goes. You'll become a better b-ball player and still get to hang-out with your friends. Chances are, someone on the team will get hurt or have to miss a game for some other reason. This means you should get a shot at playing in at least one game and get a chance to show the coaches what you can do. If your goal is to become a better player, take the coaches up on their offer and keep practicing with the team. 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.
