Some of my comments aren't being posted.Hopefully this one is. I'm 12 and I'm in the 7th grade. In a month I'll be 13. I don't play any sports but i play the viola. So i was thinking maybe i should join one.I've always wanted to play soccer since i was little (my dad really like it) but a year ago i figured i hated it... and i was HORRIBLE at it. I'm bad at volley ball and Basketball too. I've been thinking of what i should join and i narrowed it down to Gymnastics, Dance,Cheerleading (for football or basketball.) I also wanted to ask my parents if i could take swimming lessons for a while cause i cant swim. So i was wondering if i were to join Cheer what should i do to get prepared for try-outs next year? Oh and i was also wondering what i should wear or bring to tryouts. Thanks!


Hey girlie, take some dance and tumbling classes to be ready for try outs. When they start giving out information about try outs, they'll probably tell you exactly what to wear and bring so you won't have to worry about it!

MOD! I would really like to join sports in high school, preferably tennis and soccer. I haven't played on a team in a while, but I want to. How can I get ready? Also, being in a sport costs alot, so should I help pay? Thanks so much!!! Smile

hey! talk to your parents and see what they say about the money. train with some friends maybe?

I really want to play basketball again, ( i played last year, but not this year.) so what are some ways I can get better for next season? Its next december. Thanks!

Hey girl, I'd suggest talking to the coach at your school for suggestions -- they've seen you play so they know what you need to work on. In general too, I'd stick to cardio training, jogging for example, to help your endurance on the court.

i need a fall/winter sport, cuz (1) theres no fall softball this year and (2) even when there is fall ball, it ends early & the spring season starts late. sooo.. I play softball & ride horses, so what winter sports do you think ill like?
thank you!

Hey babe,

The only way to know is to try some out!

I just have a quick question. I'm starting soccer soon (monday i think) and I haven't played for over a year. I stopped because of the horrible cramps I used to get. Now I think they won't be as bad (i switched to figure skating when i stopped and did a little running over the summer)We stretch before every practice, but I still get them sometimes. Any tips on how I can not get them as much?

Hey girl, while there's no way to stop getting cramps completely, there are ways to make them go away faster. Try gently massaging the area where the cramp is or stretching the area until the cramp stops. In terms of prevention, stretching is a sure way to do so. Be sure to stretch before you exercise each time to help your muscles. If your cramps are severe and just won't go away, try talking to a doc. They'll know exactly what to do and might have some techniques or medication that will help you.
