1Hey Coach,
Last time when I was swimming, I was having my period. I sort of regret it because my mom told me that I might catch a disease. Do you think this is ok?

Hey halter105

It is perfectly okay to swim while you're having your period. While it may be a bit uncomfortable, you're not at any risk of catching a disease if you swim during menstruation. It's a good idea to use a tampon while you're swimming, since a pad will just soak up the water, and remember to change it often. If your mom still has concerns about you swimming during your period, you may have to do a bit of "parental educating" or get her to speak with a doctor.

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.

    Yeah, I don't see why you wouldn't be allowed to play soccer? Do rules like that still exist in 2015? If so, that is nauseating.
