Kids + summer sports = a winning combination with lots of benefits for children, plus it’s a great way to keep them occupied while they are out of school. Sports help kids stay happy, fit, and healthy – but don’t let your kids get sidelined by sports injuries.
For kids ages 5-14, biking, rollerblading, skateboarding, playing on playground equipment, jumping on trampolines, and playing ball – soccer, basketball, football, and baseball – are among their favorite recreational activities for summer. However, these are also the activities that top the list for summer sports injuries.
Protective gear can prevent many sports injuries. Helmets are common equipment used for many of these summer sports, and parents and coaches should enforce their use.
Multiple concussions have a cumulative negative effect on developing brains, and helmets go a long way toward protecting what is most precious to us: our children.
