the 'multi-sport' recommendation is desired by nearly all parents - a few exceptions for some who feel sure that their child is going pro. HOWEVER - the way things are set up in High School it's very difficult to be a multi-sport athlete. Practice schedules make it nearly impossible. Also, coaches are very paternal regarding their sport. Even to the point of some feuding and 'payback'... by that I mean... if one coach forbids one of his athletes to even attend a practice for another sport then the other coach retaliates.

But back to point... nearly all the parents I know wish for their kids to play multi-sports. My oldest grandson is now on the swim team, (hope they have a lifeguard because a swimmer he ain't) - and running Track... but he's getting away with this because they just brought back the Track & Field program at his High School so things are still a bit 'iffy' and being adjusted. My 2nd oldest grandson plays baseball... he is not allowed to participate in any other sport AT THE SAME time. That's odd to me... although they may have their reasons it seems to me - just as an example, (and NOT my grandson), that if a kid is, say, very fast... why can't he play baseball AND run the 100, (or whatever), as long as a game and the track meet don't conflict?

Football is the worst.... I swear High Schools are on the field practicing more than the Pros.... wellll, maybe not, but it can't be much different. - JamesJM

  Baseball.. ethical? No? You decide.... I still liked it...
