Sports Safety

More than 46.5 million children participate in sports each year in the United States. One in three children who plays a team sport is injured seriously enough to miss practice or games. Most organized sports-related injuries occur during practice rather than in games. The most common types of sports-related injuries among children are sprains, muscle strains, bone or growth plate injuries, repetitive motion injuries and heat-related illness.
