Youth Sports: Raising Awareness of Sports Injuries (Part 1)

This week, the Sports Safety Alliance held its second annual conference to raise awareness of sports injuries and suggest preventative solutions. The agenda included:
  • Sudden Cardiac Arrest 
  • Heat Illness 
  • Brain Injury/Concussion 
  • Sickle Cell Trait 
The video below is featured on their website. It's a video presentation with 73 slides. Each slide contains the names of two kids who died during sports events between 2008 and 2009.

Sadly, some of these tragedies could have been prevented. The Sports Safety Alliance is working to reduce the number of injuries and fatalities. I applaud their efforts.


  1. That's actually a good campaign. We should always be aware of these sports injuries so we may know how to deal with them.

  2. Sports injuries are quite inevitable, and somehow, you couldn't possibly be a dedicated athlete without encountering any of these.

  3. Injuries often happen because of lack of preparation (not stretching before heavy physical exercise, doing an exercise improperly, etc.), so it's good to have awareness campaigns like this.

  4. I salute the efforts of the Sports Safety Alliance in providing awareness among athletes. This implementation will surely lessen the number of injuries and even fatalities due to sports.


  5. I agree. Awareness is the number one aspect of prevention. With this kind of campaign, injuries, accidents and even deaths can be prevented. A simple fall may cause neck pain that can be very dangerous to one's health.

  6. Sports and injuries both are related to each other. As due to lack of attention and due to some mishaps, we are facing different types of injuries in our sports career. But its better to deal with these injuries, otherwise, we are facing problems. Raising the awareness of sports injuries among youths would be beneficial for them, as it increase the attention level and courage to face these problems.

  8. Throughout history, powerful people have been able to prevent some things or ارز سیفمون cause them to happen. But there are some cases that the powerful and the rich are not able to deal with. They can only be associated with these few. One of these is technology.
