1Hey Coach,
I play ice hockey and really like skateboarding as well. My mom is really worried that I'll get hurt skateboarding and fall behind in hockey and so she doesn't want me to skate. What should I do?

Hey msterpuck

To skate or not to skate, that is the question. Most professional hockey players aren't allowed to go skateboarding, snowboarding and do many other sports because their teams are worried they'll get hurt. But you're only nine and not a pro yet, so if you enjoy both sports, there's no reason you can't be skating on ice and on concrete. Skateboarding is actually a pretty safe sport and serious injuries are rare if you know what you're doing and wear the proper safety gear, including a helmet and pads. Skateboarding can also be a good cross training sport for hockey as it will help you with your coordination, conditioning and mental focus.

Many parents seem to think that skateboarding is more dangerous than it really is because of some of the skate stunts they've seen on TV. Your mom has probably spent a fair chunk of cash on hockey equipment and registration fees and so she doesn't want to see your hockey season come to an end because you tried to jump 50 stairs. Talk to your mom and let her know that you really enjoy skateboarding, you'll do it safely and that skating may actually make you a better hockey player. If you agree to always wear proper safety gear and to skate within limits, she'll probably come around and be cool with you doing both sports. As long as you're enjoying skating at the rink and at the skatepark, there's no reason you should have to give up either one.

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.
