Bring it On

Some say coed teams might hurt self esteem because girls are generally not as strong as boys. It could also put girls at higher injury risk in sports like football (Should Sports Teams be Coed 2005). Girls do not have to sign up for higher contact sports like football. they could sign up for soccer or basketball. In sports like wrestling it might cause more forfeits, because it does not feel right to wrestle the other gender. On the other hand it is the forfeiters loss when he or she could have won. Some people say that devlope (sometimes) more athletic skills at a younger age. But a girl is not forced to play on a all guys team.
