Sports Safety

Once you have all the gear you need, it is important to think about sports safety. According to StopSportsInjuries.org, high school athletes account for an estimated 2 million injuries a year.

These basic safety tips can help you perform at your best and reduce your risk of injury.

  • Warm up and stretch before and after games and practices. A typical warm up should take at least 10 minutes.
  • Stay hydrated before, during and after activity
  • Tell coaches and other adults if you’re in pain. Toughing it out could lead to bigger problems.
  • Learn the sign and symptoms of a concussion. This information is important for coaches, parents and athletes to know.
  • Avoid overuse injuries. Athletes should take at least one or two days off each week from any particular sport.
