Here is some free sports and fitness advice on spring sports such as lacross.

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 was interested in goin' out for the lacrosse team. I'm 13, kinda skinny and have never played before but it looks fun. Am I gonna get too beat up playing lacrosse?

Hey Kay_Dub21,
Like Mark Twain says, "It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog." You don't need to be the biggest player on the field, but you do have to toughen up if you want to play lacrosse. It's a contact sport and you will get your bumps and bruises, but you shouldn't end up seriously injured. In most sports you will see little guys (Allen Iverson comes to mind) who dominate everyone else because they play tough and with a lot of heart.

My advice is to buy a stick and helmet and sign right up. You obviously have some interest in the sport, so why not give it a try? Most kids start playing lacrosse around your age, so can all learn the sport together. Playing lacrosse also develops your speed and endurance, so it is an excellent physical activity to keep you in shape. My guess is that you'll love the sport so much that getting hit with a stick will be the last of your concerns on the field. You will be more concerned about how to score more goals!

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.
