Should Girls be Allowed to Play on Boys' Sports Teams?
By: Drew Cromwell
Introduction
Girls cannot become a pro against boys so why should they play against them as kids?
Girls cannot become a pro against boys so why should they play against them as kids?
Hook
Thesis

Although girls can be just as skilled as boys, their bodies are built differently, and therefore girls should not be allowed to play on boys’ sports teams.
Reasons
Boys cannot play on girls’ sports teams, boys are usually more competitive, aggressive, and stronger than girls, and girls playing with can cause financial and favoring problems.
Intro
Opinion

I do not believe girls should play on boys' sports teams.
Reason 1
The Other Side
The opposing side argues a couple of reasons; the other side argues that girls can be just as skilled as boys and that all humans are equal. They say that all people should have an equal opportunity to play sports boy or girl. The opposing side also, argues that girls can train as hard as boys and be just as skilled as boys.
First, girls should not be allowed to play on boys sports teams because boys cannot play on girls’ teams. In fact a boy named Keeling Pilaro played on his school’s girls’ field hockey team because they did not have a boys’ team, but was kicked off the team because he "excelled". Considering one of the other side’s main arguments is equal opportunity girls do not allow boys to participate in girls’ sports.
Reason 2
Next, girls should not be allowed to participate in boys’ athletics because girls may cause financial and favoring issues. For example, schools would need to provide a separate locker room for the girl to change and shower. Also if a girl is on the team coaches may feel like they have to play the girl more than the boys so the parents do not think the coach likes boys better. Another favoring issue could be the referees may call fouls more often if they are on a girl.
Reason 3
Third, girls should not play on boys’ sports teams because boys tend to be stronger, more competitive, and more aggressive than girls. Since boys are usually stronger than girls they may accidentally hurt girls. Boys tend to be more aggressive so in a sport like soccer or basketball if a boy commits a hard foul on a girl by mistake they probably would look like a jerk for no reason. Also very competitive boys could intentionally hurt a girl because the girl is showing up the boy.
Conclusion
Last, although girls can be just as skilled as boys, their bodies are built differently, and therefore girls should not be allowed to play on boys’ sports teams.
Thesis
Reasons
Girls should not be allowed to play on boys’ sports teams because boys cannot play on girls’ teams, boys tend to be stronger, more competitive, and aggressive, and girls may cause financial and favoring issues.
Hook
“We want the best female players to be representing the girls instead of putting all of their talent on the boys’ teams.”-Sabrina Victor
