I do not think children should be allowed to play sports in their first year of middle school.



On this chart, you see that in the teen years, brain injury reaches a climatic point as the child approaches adulthood. While we cannot fully keep kids out of sports, I believe that the first year of middle school can be used for other reasons. For instance, why just let our kids rush in and play sports, and maybe get injured? I propose that we dedicate the first year of middle school to experimenting sports with the kids, and going over how to be safe playing. This way, whenever they are in the next grade/year, they will know how to ensure their safety and make sure that their chance of getting injuries is greatly diminshed.

Please do not penalize my opponent for his forfeiture, he may have had something to do that was of more significance, blocking him from posting his argument.
