Should sports be illegal for children?
Debate Rounds (3)
http://www.ehow.com... . Kids that just suck are so proud of making a kids team even though they aren't good. They think they will go pro and when they don't it effects the emotion and makes them feel bad about themselves physically and mentally.
The sense of belonging is great for kids. They learn how to be better people and help others.
Sports make people happy and make them feel good about themselves. http://www.sportanddev.org...
Taking away sports for kids below high school would make education the soul focus and kids would be smarter because of school being their soul focus. http://www.nytimes.com... . Parents push kids to far to young and when kids bones aren't developed fully they are at a higher risk. Kids 5-14 make up 40 percent of sports injuries http://www.stopsportsinjuries.org... so if they made sports illegal for kids now until high school there wouldn't be injuries as bad and keep kids safe.
70 PERCENT OF KIDS AT AGE 13 GIVE UP ON SPORTS. Do you know why? This is because coaches and parents push them to hard. http://www.stopsportsinjuries.org... .

Do you want all kids to look like this? I know you love playing sports and being competitive. Imagine not being able to play sports. That would ruin your life.
http://www.saidwhat.co.uk... . Just look at some of the people who have said these quotes: People like Aristotle, Thomas Jefferson, and Theodore Roosevelt. These all people we look up to have all said education is the key to the future not sports, and that is why I chose to represent the PRO side of why and should (competitive)sports for children be illegal.
