Of course!! Sixth graders are so active and filled with excitement and they should let all that energy out with playing sports and play against eighth graders, but that will make them more challenged and make them want to play and win even more than what they usually would want to win.Eighth graders already think they are better than everybody else in the school, so it would mean a lot if the sixth graders can play against them.
Yes, to a degree. Children of 10-12 years old are entering the middle school years. They need to learn to be part of a team. As a 78er football and Wrestling coach, I recruited 6th graders every year to be part of the team. While under our conference rules, they weren't able to play or participate in games or tournaments, they practiced with us every day, and wrestlers were able to match during non-tournament events. Being with the team at games and events helped them become part of the whole. They became part of the brother/sisterhood, the family (yes, I recruited girls for both teams as well, and one of the best wrestlers I ever found was a 68 pound girl who went to state in high school; I found a couple good female halfbacks too).
By the next year, when they were able to participate fully, they had already learned the plays and fundamental positions and moves, and did not begin "at the bottom" if they had waited until joining the team in 7th grade. This went a long way toward keeping morale higher.
It is really depending on the school. I go to a private school and sixth graders are granted the possibility of playing a sport. I also know children at schools are not granted the wish of sixies at da sports field..,
Yes. Everyone has the right to play sports, and most junior high sports are entirely appropriate for sixth grade. Sports are well supervised by teachers, so there is no physical danger.
no unless they call it midget ball
Yes, they should.
There are upside to letting 6th graders play middle school sports, but there are also downsides like if they 6th graders are focused on sports then they may not focus as much on their schoolwork or getting used to middle school.
well my school is k-4 5&6 7&8 9-12 but at my school 6th grades cant play sports either but most schools don't have 6th graders do sports
At some schools they allow it such as basketball, volleyball etc. In 7th grade most schools start sports there.
They are to young to be playing with eighth graders!! Also it was clinically proven that the new transition for 6th Graders is 2 hard2 handle
yes athletic and not fat will help them in school
only 1 thing T-O-T-A-L-L-Y
Yes, almost every school's sports team is very safe, if you want further info you must talk to the school.
most schools have a great afterschool sports program. but depending on the school and where you live plays a big part in the difficulty level and selections of sports.
Yes! No matter what you like there is always something for you. Sports may be the best thing that ever happened to me :)
6th graders 8th graders and 7th graders go there
Yeah....6th graders do have dances....I did when I was in 6th grade....SOUUU YES THEY DO! (;
Well it usually depends on the school you go to. Because I know that my high school played football against another high school from a different state. Plus, usuallly middle schools don't play against different middle schools from out of their county. Maybe you should ask your coach about that..
