Image this, you are a 13 year old girl who is a skilled soccer player. You are trying out for the only advanced soccer team in your area, but it is a boys’ team. By the time tryouts are about to begin, the coach comes over and says you can't tryout because you are a girl. Well, most likely you will feel very disappointed. However, in reality, this happens to many skilled female athletes all around the United States. This is stopping many young girls from achieving their dreams. Before the onset of puberty, girls should be allowed to play on boys’ sports teams as it improves confidence, skill, and sportsmanship.
