So the boys get all the prime spots? #titleixdad

I spent yesterday morning dodging sleepy football players. I was running a workout on the Athens YMCA track, and as parents and peewees staggered down to the football and soccer fields, a disparity struck me. There were boy football players. Boy soccer players, too. But the only girls were cheerleaders.
Football culture is alive and well here and in countless other small towns; the message about how concussions can affect young athletes definitely has not sunk in. But at least as depressing is that the Y (where I’m a member) would schedule all the primo morning time slots for boys’ teams.
Kids need sports. They need the exercise, the physical development, the kinesthetic intelligence, and the fresh air that comes with playing sports. But I thought everyone had gotten the message that girls need all those things just as much as boys. If the answer is sideline cheerleading, we still have some work to do.

If you’re thinking of starting a sports blog…

…you need to answer two key questions: What’s my space and who is my audience? Take a look at the following examples:

SportsBizMiss
Saturday Down South
Peachtree Hoops
College Athletic Clips

Whatever you think of the execution or the subject matter, they know who they are. Do you?
