Seems like everything is lacking balls......(no pun intended
Kids need to play more rugby.
Seriously though, I'm surprised it hasn't caught on in a place where we love violence.
As I kid growing up I'm pretty sure I would have dropped to my knees and thanked the heavens! I was always targeted in school, especially in gym, for being over weight. Very embarrassing as a child I must say.
Though I am in no way, shape, or form for promoting this "everybody wins because it boosts self esteem" attitude because guess what life is full of losers!
. There is a fine line between what is humiliating and detrimental to a child and what will give them the drive to push themselves to be better.
