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.

    Cheer leading, I think, is not a sport. I mean the girls who are cheer leaders never go are the girls teams but never miss a team where there are boys. So if it was a sport then shouldn't they cheer for all the students who are play a certain game where cheer leading is needed/allowed? Maybe in some schools it is a sport but in most, it isn't. -_-'

    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.
