Not all competitive: Childhood is not a rehearsal for adulthood. Kids should play sports to learn about team work, make new friends, learn a new skill and exercise. What is a "top player" in little league?

No cut policies are controversial: all students would have equal right to choose their level of participation or roles in any co-curricular activity regardless of ability. The real issue with cutting is the parents vs child's self esteem and skills development vs competition.
