Girls develop faster, which is why they usually have the upper hand in sports. That's why in games lessons between boys and girls of the same age you often see the girl player teasing the boy but never the other way round - girls can take the time to tease because the game's easier for them. It also helps that girls are allowed to play sports in skirts and boys normally can't, because skirts keep you cooler when you're running around. For sports to be equal between boys and girls, you should play the boys against a younger age-group of girls. You should also try to get all the players to wear skirts, though it can be hard to convince boys to do this.

Why can't boys join girls sports but girls can join boy sports?

This comes from a civil rights act called Title 9. For many many years there was no sports for girls nor money for girls sports and all the money went to boys/men ( much of it still does). Girls couldn't play in boys sports and the boys all ready had sports they could play. When Title 9 was passed it stated that girls had to be allowed to play on male only teams and that money had to be equal between the two types of sports programs. Many colleges have gotten into trouble because there is still unequal treatment between men's and women's teams/sports.
