Why do we impose this limitation on physical teaching when there are now limitations on mental (for want of a better word)? A child can be forced to slog out revision for exams hour after hour each day. Why is this allowed if physical education isn't?
Also, there's the ridiculous rule about only being able to take on youngsters near your postcode. Imposed because there's a worry big teams are nicking all the talent from local teams. But isn't' that what happens in academic life? If you're talented, you are pushed to go to Oxford or Cambridge. Surely parents want their children to be trained by the best?
