Kidzworld's got some free sports and fitness advice on sports like skateboarding.

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'm really good at playing sports and I love doing it. So I wanted to learn a new sport like skateboarding. One problem - I have no idea what I'm doing. kaylakk98

kaylakk98,
Most people don't know what they're doing when they do anything for the first time. The good news for you is that you are already athletic so you have a good chance at picking it up quicker than if you weren't.

The key to skateboarding is just being comfortable on the board. You don't need to be worried about doing crazy tricks or riding off ramps. All you want to do is to ride that skateboard as much as possible and get your balance and control of it down. Ride it around your neighborhood or in parks or parking lots.

Don't forget to wear a helmet and pads for your elbows, wrists and knees - because you will fall a lot at first. Also, make sure you wear skate shoes. Believe it or not skate shoes are not just for fashion, they're designed to give you better grip on the board. Wearing other shoes can be dangerous.

You have all the tools, all it takes is a little practice. In no time, you'll be a rad boarding chick!

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.
