My argument is that elementary schools should not have a sports team. Mainly because they have not been exposed to much sports, and if they are leaning there a-b-cs than how would they be ready to follow game rules. most games would be a bunch of kids stumbling a ball around.
It is the truth that once kids get older they would learn to follow rules. But elementary school kid are not mature enough to play, mainly if the kids start playing sports most will start watching sports on T.V. and adopt some of the nasty attitudes of the players playing, say football. Which middle school and high school students realize are bad attitudes.
I do agree with you on that but I think that in younger grade it would be more loosely played and not as competitive as the 4th and 5th grade teams. If you get told the rules of the game and you want to play you should be able to at your school. Plus they probably wouldn't play tackle football maybe flag.
