Gender discrimination should not be allowed on any level at any school. We kindly request the administration at Strong Rock Christian School change their currently policy and allow for both genders to play on any sports team of their choosing provided there are not teams already in existence for each sex. Being on a team should be based on ability and not gender. School is not only a place for learning academics. School also teaches our children valuable life lessons and social skills. Playing sports is good for our children as they learn teamwork, how to settle differences, communication skills, dedication, and the three P's: Practice, Patience and Persistence. We are not asking for the school to lower their standards for excellence. We are simply asking that all children be given a chance to succeed based on their abilities and not be excluded based solely on their gender.
