Hi, we have been running a study on children's understanding of the offside rule which showed that while girls in principle understand it, boys who played football more than three times a week were better judges of this football rule - and 2/3 of the boys did play this often.
Here is a link to the study (open-access)
Here are some press links
We now want to test (1) whether girls who play in an English football club will be as good as the boys, and (2) boys who prefer the communal library over the football pitch will be as good as the girls in this game.
The FA and the London football clubs declined to finance this research because they have too many enquiries and financing too many projects already - but would you be interested whether your daughters are potentially as clever as the boys in the rules of this game? Please do sponsor a research assistant who could visit football clubs and libraries and run the computer game with the children.
