If you are your child is in middle school and is thinking about becoming involved in a school sport, look no further than football. Football has become one of the most popular sports. It naturally raises the most money of any team sports and middle school football fundraisers are among the easiest and most successful middle school fundraisers.
Football is an American sport. Every year in February we gather around to watch the biggest football game of the year, The Super bowl. Perhaps your child has a dream of one day playing in the Super Bowl, well I say let it happen. Many kids today play touch football or Pee-Wee football. This is a great way for kids to learn the basics of the game and how much fun it is. Teaching kids at an early age is also a great way to get a jump start on pursuing their goals. That is why middle school football is so important. Can you imagine a high school football team, whose players have never played before? They would get slaughtered! Kids today start sports so early if a kid was to wait until high school to play they would have a huge handicap. Middle school football is also a way for kids to make new friends. We all know that middle school is an awkward time for most, so it makes it much easier when they find friends who have the same passions as they do.
Middle school football teaches kids how to play the game, good sportsmanship, and most importantly how to have fun playing the game. When kids play just to have fun that is when you know that they are doing this just because they want to. But when they put pressure on themselves, or even parents or coaches, the game isn’t fun anymore. It is always great to see these kids just out there playing their hearts out and loving every minute of it. Football is a great sport for guys and girls, especially in middle school. There is a staggering increase in girls who play middle school football. It is fun for them because the guys aren’t that much bigger than them, it is when you get to high school that boys really grow a lot. Girl or guy, football is great.
Football is a sport that any sex or age can enjoy.
