My dd is 6. She's played soccer the past 2 seasons, I signed her up just this past week to play this year. She's over the moon excited.
I get a call today from her new coach, he's saying not enough girls in her age group signed up so her team this year will be co-Ed. The problem is the league we play against this season does not do co -Ed teams. Therefore her team will be required to play against all boys each game.
Dd is tiny. She weights 38 lbs and is about 45 inches tall. Tiny. I'm worried these much bigger boys are going to hurt her. She played a scrimage last against the boys and got hurt badly.
Her father agrees with me also saying it won't be fun. Her team won't send a chance against 6 and 7 yr old all boy teams. I talked to her exlaining our fears. She is adamant she wants to play. So, if this was your child would you let them play? Am I just being a nervous nelly?

My DD played tackle football.
The only girl in her age group for several years.
She finally stopped when she couldn't take them down any more.
And yes, she is on the smaller side- she made up for it by being really fast.
I say, let her try. You never know, she may surprise you...Here she is #10
