Quiz the coach helps teens and tweens with sports and fitness related issues and problems like obesity, healthy eating questions, skateboard tricks and P.E. dilemnas. - 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'm a girl and I wanted to play football at my middle school but my parents didn't let me. Now my coach is giving me some heat because he thinks the real reason I didn't play is because I was too scared. How can I get my coach to believe me that I didn't chicken out?.

Hey CountingSheep

I think you should change your strategy. Rather than trying to convince your coach that you didn't chicken out, you should see if your coach can convince your parents to let you play. Your parents may not have let you play because they're concerned you might get hurt, they want you to be involved in other activies or they're worried about the time commitment.

Ask your coach to speak with your parents about the mental, physical and social benefits of playing football. He may be able to convince your parents that playing football is a healthy activity for a 13 year-old girl. You may be pleasantly surprised to find out what happens when your coach and parents talk to each other. At the very least, he'll realize that you didn't just chicken out.

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.
