Boys and Girls sports together
BY: Coach Steve French
Should Boys and Girls play sports together?
When adults or other coaches ask me if I would ever let a girl play on my football team I always look at them funny because why should that even be a question. I know many girls that could compete with and against any boys. Yes, we all know boys are faster and stronger, but that's not the only thing you need to play football or really any sport. Girls are less likely to get hurt then boys. They have better endurance then boys and don't get up as easily. It would be difficult for traveling when girls have to change in a different locker room, but that isn't a huge problem. If girls chose to play on a boys team they should be treated equally. Just as if a boy wanted to play on a women's team. Most people look down on girls and see them and never being good enough for boys sports, and I hope for that to change soon.
