Dodgeball helps teach students around the world that it is OK to lose at a game every now and then, it happens to everyone. Rick Reilly, the author of the article Weak Shall Inherit the Gym stated that “Then those kids’ parents will send them out into the world to realise that, Yes there are winners and losers.” Bringing this statement into the argument helps show that if adults do not show those noncompetitive children that it is possible to lose, they will not act like an adult when they do lose they will never learn. Kids just have to learn to deal with it and learn from their mistakes so they will not lose next time. Children have to deal with losing like a Mature adult or they will have a rough life later on.
The children these days are being turned into lamb chops, marshmallows, and princesses because we are banning sports that use physical contact, even dodgeball. The schools should keep dodgeball as a game in PE. Dodgeball helps with children's athletic skills, letting them participate, and not playing dodgeball can make children soft. There are mainly three points on why we should keep dodgeball in schools.
Youths should not be banned from sports such as Football, Dodgeball, and cheerleading. To begin with dodgeball should should not be banned. One reason children should be allowed to play these sports is because the sport gets you fit and teaches you mental skills. According to Rick Hanetho, “The game allows kids who are not good athletes to participate in a team sport” (171). This proves that this gives kids opportunities to become good athletes. The sport cheerleading should not be banned for children is because Coaches are trained and they know what they are doing. According to Lord, “You can minimize the chance of having an injury is to have a qualified coach” (173-176). This proves if you have a good coach they know what is best
Even if the weak-link knows that they are weak, it will not help them deal with it, because it may be a physical condition that they cannot change, such as height or obesity. In the article, “Position on Dodgeball in Physical Education”, there is natter of “… developing and executing extreme strategies to annihilate opponents”, which also does not help the less swift child to move out of the pathway quick enough. This fixture is also a “… means of practicing some important physical skills…”, says “The Weak Shall Inherit the Gym”. However, dodge ball only benefits the confident kids, since they already do not have any limitations, whereas a more mentally or physically challenged child would. Dodge ball’s supporters claim that “They (the anti-Dodge ball critics) want their Ambers and their Alexanders to grow up in a cozy womb of noncompetition…” However, decriers argue that this harsh exercise “… encourages the best to pick on the weak.” It is not the noncompetitive versus the competitive, but rather the confident versus the non-sprightly. “Position on Dodgeball in Physical Education” says that, “Activities such as relay races, dodge ball, and elimination tag provide limited opportunities for everyone in the class, especially the slower, less agile students…” They oppose to the idea that all kids like this sport, since the limits are more towards the plumper or challenged children. They say, “Some kids may like it - the most skilled, the most
Youth shouldn’t be banned from participating in sports such as Dodgeball, cheerleading , and football. One reason dodgeball should not be banned , because it teaches physical and mental skills. According to NADA founder Rick Heatheo he says, “It allows kids who are not athletes participate in a team sport. This shows that the kids who don't play on team sports get the opportunity to play a sport a be on a team.This sport is also teaching kids eye hand coordination and the ability to think and draw quick conclusions, plus kids say it’s a fun sport If properly supervised. Cheerleading is one sport that definitely shouldn’t banned. A reason Cheerleading shouldn’t be banned because most coaches are trained and certified. According to Cheerleading
Football is, in a sense, an amalgamation of what we perceive our nation 's values to be: teamwork, dedication and self-sacrifice. These values can be attributed to most any team sport though it is football that has become our favorite, satiating our lust for brutality. While this is not inherently a bad thing, the sport poses a much greater risk of concussions that other sports, more specifically to high school students. These injuries have previously had unknown long term effects but are now linked to dementia, depression and irritability and a wide range of other medical issues. Most players whether in high school or the NFL are painfully unaware of the risks that concussions may have on them. While banning football on a professional level is implausible, football should be removed from high school as the risks are insurmountable, especially when the same athleticism and character building can be found in most other team sports.
When it comes to subject that the public is concerned about, contact sports and the consequences that come from playing such sports is definitely high on the list. The one fact that one will notice by reading the following is the reasons why contact sports should be banned and the credible sources that have confirmed the harsh outcomes of playing such sports. Through the injuries, problems that come from concussions, and the fact that athletes are pushed beyond their limitations, one will see that playing contact sports is not at all what it is cracked up to be. The injuries tell it all and through the blood-soaked writing that has been typed below one will see that playing contact sports should be banned for good from public schools.
Youth should not be banned from playing dodgeball ,cheerleading,and football participant in sport. To begin,dodgeball shouldn’t be banned because it teaches important skills. According to the Rich Haneto,founder of national dodgeball assoc,said “It teaches hand eye coordination and ability to think and draw quick conclusion . This proves that dodgeball teaches skills that can make kids better at sport. Now that we know that dodgeball is good sport to play you should know that cheerleading is a good sport to play two. And this is why cheerleading is a good sport to play because when coaches have certifications they know how to teach cheerleading to avoid injury. This shows that cheerleading is great to play. According to the text
For the past 50 years in America, schools have made it a tradition to play sports in schools. But schools have been crushing the future for their students because they allow sports in schools. While students and parents feel that sports in schools are appropriate and valuable, that is just simply not the case and schools have just gone too far. Schools should eliminate sports programs because sports programs put a financial burden on schools, getting rid of sports will increase in academics and students can get injured when playing sports.
youth aged 6-19 are overweight. Tripled the proportion of 25 years ago” (source one). In order to, help our kids in obesity, we need to get Dodgeball out of our program because it’s just making the situation worse. The only thing that Dodgeball teaches kids is to kill everybody that is against him. Why should we have our kids keep playing this bad sport that only teaches them to kill. When we should be focusing on those 16% of the kids that overweight. Then again there's kids that like Dodgeball because they're skilled at it. Most likely you're not going to see a kid that is weak and always getting hit the stomach liking the game Dodgeball. It’s not good to teach our kids that hitting other people with a ball is
At the end of a long, stressful day at school, you look out to the field where you will soon be with your friends, enjoying the sun on your skin and working off the stress of your cooped up day at school, with your favorite sport, of course. The article “Should Your School Get Rid of School Sports?” has two very strong point of views. Part one, “Yes! It’s Time to Scale Back” by Amanda Ripley argues that we should get rid of school sports. However, part two, “No! Sports Are More Important Than Ever” by Tim O’Shei argues that we should keep school sports. School sports can be expensive, but there are many more benefits and reasons for having sports at school than getting rid of them.
Imagine a youth baseball player stepping up to the plate ready to bat. In the stands, parents and coaches yell “Stop shaking the bat so much!” “Come On, Swing Already!!”. The more the batter thinks about what the parents say, the more the player starts to worry. His hands get clammy and sweaty, and he keeps gripping and regripping the bat. Batters who worry about their performance are more likely to mess up than relaxed batters. When the players mess up, they get down on themselves. Games have changed from an experience players love to a super competitive experience. Screaming coaches and overly enthusiastic parents make sports less of a hobby and more of a battle. Some players say that they love the challenge, and that the competition
In life there is a competition happening for who gets what job, and your best won’t be good enough. You have to fight in order to get praise and awards, otherwise it’s just pointless when someone does a terrible job and yet still receives a trophy. You need to work above your best and go to your excellence to get what you want and not do the minimal work that is necessary in a project. Life is full of wins and losses, and if children aren’t aware of this sooner in life, they aren’t going to be prepared for reality. Jones acknowledges this in her article by saying, “You learn that losing hurts -- even in T-ball - but it is an essential part of living a meaningful
Kids all over the nation love Dodgeball. I know this because I’m one of them. Our class always wines to play it and we get to on Fridays as our reward for making it through the week. Kids love the game so why should you take it away? When taken away from school children will just play the game elsewhere. If we
By participating in competitive sports at an early age, kids develop life skills to help them with this dilemma. They learn that when they see others being successful, that it is due to the hard work they put in and not just by chance.
