Get Physical

Kidzworld's "Get Physical"

Ages 9-13

http://www.kidzworld.com/site/get_physical.htm

Here's a kids' sport site with its head on straight. The writing is friendly and smart throughout. Kids can learn about their favorite sports and heroes, but the site pays equal or greater attention to helping kids get active and stay healthy - be it through organized sports or by jumping rope. There's an advice column called "Quiz the Coach" with all sorts of interesting kid-questions, like "Will weight training stunt my growth?" For skateboarders, there's a column called "Ask Simon" where kids can get advice on how to learn particular tricks or even find out how to get sponsored.

I like the "Gear" part of the site too, I expected to find a catalog of stuff to buy, but instead I found product reviews and tips on choosing and caring for sports equipment. A featured article tells how to break in a new baseball glove.
