I believe that kids under the age of 12 should not be able to compete in sports that can cause head injuries to the kids that play the sports. I believe this to be true because many kids can have concussions at young ages hurting their future and getting Alzheimer's at early ages around 40. my evidence is a article by Jacqueline stenson where she says how some kids pressure rises the more they play so they don't lose because children feel if they lose they might feel sad that they lost because they might fail someone and try impress someone when they don't have to worry but still do. I know sports is fun but we still need to look out when playing and to discontinue if the child gets hurt. Another point is kids might lose confidence in playing when they lose or feel bad if their opponents lose starting the parents to cause troubles when something goes wrong for the team they are supporting . This shows how kids sports can hurt people's behavior and change someone's attitude when playing kids sports
