1Hey Coach,
I made the team but my teacher banned me from playing b-ball because my test results weren't good. Now, my studies are good but she still won't let me play. What should I do to convince her to let me play b-ball?

Hey Stryke

Most teachers think it's more important to know fractions, verbs and state capitals than it is to have a good jump shot. And, unless you're Lebron James, your teachers are right. If you're not passing all your tests in the classroom, don't expect to be passing the basketball around on the court.

However, exerise and playing sports are important and you should have time to do well in school and play basketball. Your teacher is probably concerned that your marks will start to slip if you start playing basketball again. Explain to your teacher that you understand the importance of getting good marks and that you'll study even harder if you're allowed back on the team.

Make sure you can live up to your end of the bargain by spending as much time doing homework as you do shooting hoops. If your teacher still won't let you play ball, disguise yourself with a big, afro wig and dark glasses and tell your teacher you're a new student.

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.

    I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.

    The Cowboys have cut Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted in the NFL, from the team. Is this an expression of the conformity policy so deeply rooted in American athletics?
