Soccer-not for girls?

Quote Quote by Imparcticle
Someone said that I shouldn't play soccer because I'm a girl...this person says that soccer is bad for girls.
I asked Mia Hamm and she disagreed...

Seriously though, I think team sports for girls (soccer in particular) are more important than for guys. Guys (in the US anyway) historically were taught the principles of teamwork and competitiveness while girls were taught to follow guys around. Team sports is one of the keys to breaking that mold. That's a good reason for your parents to push you into it, but you should do it for a simple reason: its fun. Not to mention, its physically healthy too.
