4. and last think a coach should take into account is what skill level the athlete is at. A child could be four-teen, but have the skill of an eight year old depending on the activity and vise verse. With these four things in mind a coach should be able to keep their athletes safe and not push them to far.
Results of pushing an athlete too far could vary. The athlete could break down, get hurt, quit the sport or all sports, or the worst die. These are just a few things that could come out of a coach pushing his/her students to far.

I'm sure everyone who is a sports fan has head of play 60. But there is a new organization now to help raise healthier and in shape kids. It is Let's Move created by Machelle Obama. At www.letsmove.gov there are many ways to help. parents, schools, other children, and the community can make a better life for our and their children. Parents can get on the right track to making and choosing healthier foods. Schools can add healthy living to their lesson plans. children can have fun by eating healthy and being active. The communities can create more opportunities for children to get out and play. The key thing to remember is to take action. No matter who you are, what you do, or how much you do, everyone should take action to create a better living environment for the children. The children are future fire fighters, engineers, political leaders, CEO's, just to name a few. Now think of what a difference our world could be if we teach them life long skills and healthy eating habits. Let's all take action and build a better way of living!
