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,
Okay, I'm 13 and I'm a girl and I've just made the Varsity Boys soccer team but whenever we play another school I hear hurtful remarks like, "She's so small, we'll crush her," and "I bet she can't even kick the ball." What can I do instead of opting to kick the ball straight in their faces?

Hey feminist

Why waste your time kicking a ball at the faces of a bunch of chumps, who are just trying to get under your skin? The players on these other teams are looking to get a reaction out of you and throw you off your game. It can be difficult to ignore hurtful comments, especially if you're also dealing with the pressure of being the only girl on a boys' team, but you're on the team for a reason. You've made your school's boys' team because you're a good soccer player, so don't make yourself look silly by getting upset and trying to hurt someone else (even, if they do deserve a ball in the face).

Show the other players you belong by making smart plays and working hard. Once the other teams see you're a good player and aren't reacting to their remarks, they'll pipe down and may even start to respect you. By reacting to their comments, you'll play into their hands and take your mind off playing soccer. Keep your eye on the ball and ignore the chumps on the other teams.

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.

    It's definitely an American thing - here in Australia we have like no Cheerleaders or Cheerleading groups. I think it's a sport but I'm not really into it. I think any girls or boys can do it. :3
