    True or False: Mirrors are important for female athletes to keep their hair out of their face and not to watch their lifting form.

    Correct Answer
    False
    Explanation
    Mirrors are not important for female athletes to keep their hair out of their face. There are other methods and tools available for this purpose, such as hair ties, headbands, or caps. Mirrors are more commonly used by athletes to watch and correct their lifting form, rather than for hair management.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Which accessory is not paired with its reason for importance?

    True or False: There is no need for a stretching area, the athletes can stand randomly to stretch.

    Correct Answer
    False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because having a stretching area is important for athletes. A designated stretching area provides a safe and controlled environment for athletes to perform their stretching routines. It allows them to focus on their stretches without any distractions or obstructions. Additionally, a stretching area ensures that athletes have enough space to move freely and perform dynamic stretches, which can help improve flexibility and prevent injuries. Standing randomly to stretch may lead to inefficient stretching techniques and increase the risk of injury.

    Which is not the correct Staff to Athlete Ratio?

    • A.

      Junior High School 1:5

    • B.

      High School 1:15

    • C.

      Older than high school 1:20

    Correct Answer
    A. Junior High School 1:5
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Junior High School 1:5." This ratio suggests that there is one staff member for every five athletes in a junior high school setting. This ratio seems too low compared to the other options, as high school has a ratio of 1:15 and older than high school has a ratio of 1:20. Typically, as students progress to higher grade levels, the number of athletes per staff member increases due to larger class sizes and more independent learning.
