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 love to skateboard but I live in the country with no cement or anything to skate on. When my parents go uptown I skateboard as much as I can but that isn't often. My parents don't have the time or money to take me to skateparks or uptown when I want to. Should I just give up skating or keep with it?

Hey Skateboarder_899

Are you actually thinking about giving up skateboarding just because you don't live in a cement paradise? Give your head a shake, dude. Part of the fun of skateboarding is trying to find new places to skate - even if it means being a bit creative. Back in the 1970s, skateboarders in California would sneak into someone's yard that had a swimming pool, drain the pool and then skateboard in the empty swimming pool until the owners of the home arrived. I'm not suggesting you turn other people's pools into your own skatepark - but don't let your location put an end to your skateboarding career.

With the help of your parents or a woodworking teacher at school, you can build a half-pipe, ramp or rail for your back yard without spending a ton of cash. Click here for a few ideas to help you get started. You could also try skateboarding in your house. Most kitchen floors are made of linoleum or tile which is a great surface for practicing ollies. You can try doing kickflips over chairs or grinding along the edge of a coffee table. Once again, we don't suggest you do this, cuz most parents probably won't be too impressed. But, it may convince them to take you to a skatepark once in a while, or to at least lay down a patch of cement in your back yard.

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.

Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)

The highest I go is about the middle of the pitch :p :p :p So basically you play more of an attacking right midfield? That's interesting.  I'm guessing you play a 4-2-3-1 ? I play RM and LM. I'm a Box to box midifielder though. I rarely go through to the middle and I play wide.
