No Contact Athletic Alternative for Middle School started this petition to Cain Middle School/RISD

Current situation:

- If you are a boy in middle school your athletic options are PE or tackle football.

-If you don’t want to sign up for football,  but later in the year want to play other sports like basketball, you must enroll in PE.

-On the other hand, if you sign up for football but don’t want to play another sport like basketball, you get to stay in “Athletics” and be in off-season conditioning.

-This is overly biased/skewed in favor of those who choose tackle football because they get the privilege of staying out of PE altogether.

-The goal of this petition is not to take away football or anything else, but to provide more fair and safe options for our boys. 

What we’d like:

-Your support for an off-season class where boys could be part of Athletics, working on conditioning, agility training, strength and other drills but sit out from tackling, being tackled or playing football with contact...with the option to try out and play for other sports offered at school
