Default School Bans Footballs, Baseballs, Games Of Tag, Doing Cartwheels During Recess

It's a good thing there's not a childhood obesity problem....

Quote:
Officials at Weber Middle School in Port Washington are worried that students are getting hurt during recess. Thus, they have instituted a ban on footballs, baseballs, lacrosse balls, or anything that might hurt someone on school grounds.
Tossing a football during recess has long seemed to be a rite of passage for kids in the school community. “I think we need the soccer balls, the footballs and everything, so we can have some fun,” one student said.

But the students will have no such option anymore. They were just informed that during recess, football is out and Nerf ball is in. Hard soccer balls have been banned, along with baseballs and lacrosse balls, rough games of tag, or cartwheels unless supervised by a coach.

Students were not thrilled about the news. “Cartwheels and tag — I think it’s ridiculous they are banning that,” one said. “You go for recess — that’s your free time to go let loose and recharge,” another said.

But Port Washington schools Supt. Kathleen Maloney said the change in policy is warranted due to a rash of playground injuries. “Some of these injuries can unintentionally become very serious, so we want to make sure our children have fun, but are also protected,” Maloney said. Without helmets and pads, children are much more susceptible to getting hurt, experts said.

Thank God. Will all those stupid sports out of the way, now kids can get down to the business of what recess is really all about - selling drugs, bullying, and hooking up under the monkey bars.

My condolences. But then again, the playground is survival of the fittest.

They should have knitting or crosstiching set up for them at recess. Wait, they might hurt a finger.

Hahah.

And we wonder why kids are growing up with fat rolls, moobs, and no competitive spirit.

Middle schoolers play tag? That's a new one to me.

Hard footballs are out but NERF is in. Hmmmm...what's the big difference? I love playing football with a nerf. You can zing those things.

We weren't allowed bats and baseballs at recess...probably not a bad idea for my middle school

It's probably just referring to it as recess rather than break that makes it sound strange.


At any rate, when I was in middle school we played "soccer" which ended up being a hybrid soccer/rugby/football/MMA type deal and only a few people fractured any bones. It was a good bonding experience for all the guys. It really was a great way to expel excess energy between classes. Oh the joys of being at a small private school in the middle of nowhere

Hm. Weird. We never had that in middle school. I went to a public school in Columbia. I also have 2 siblings in middle school now, one in Columbia, one in Savannah and neither of them have a break/recess either.

Maybe we just had a longer lunch period? And we had the ability to sit outside if we wanted so maybe that considered that our break.
