Protect your kids from injury and keep the fun in sports
Sports are great for kids’ physical, mental and social development. They learn valuable life lessons such as teamwork, discipline and leadership.
Still, parents like you are concerned about the downside of youth sports—the millions of injuries, physical and emotional burnout, and overemphasis on winning.
Here are some stats from an ESPN survey of young athletes:
-Over 25% of kids drop out of youth sports due to health problems/injuries
-Over 35% drop out of youth sports activities due to lack of fun
