Getting your children involved in sports is a great way to teach them sportsmanship and discipline. However, injuries from accidents both major and minor during sport activities are inevitable. In 2012, 1.3 million kids were rushed to the ER for sports related injuries that range from strains, sprains, busted heads, bruises, scrapes, fractures and torn ligaments. Now the big question is; how can parents and guardians keep their young athlete safe from injuries?
Contact sports such as basketball, soccer, football and hockey are the common causes of sports injuries in kids today. These sports are well loved by young people and are the most played sports on the field or court for fun and competition.
When you have children who are active in sports, you need to get yourself and your kids prepared before putting them into the competitive arena. Preparation for your kids begins at home; like serving them healthy meals, have them do warm ups at home such as stretching, provide necessary vitamins and supplements according to the doctor’s prescription and make sure they get enough rest and sleep for sound mind and body.
How to Prepare Your Child
It is always best to know what kind of sports your child is doing, learn about the common causes of injuries and get information on how to prevent it. As kids grow stronger and bigger, the potential for injury increases. All sport injuries require immediate attention to prevent further or worsening injury.
How to Prevent Sports Injuries
Here are simple guidelines you can follow to help prevent your child from having sports injuries:
Provide Protective Equipment
Protection is necessary in order to keep your child safe. Approach your child’s coach and ask what protective equipment they must use when playing the game. It could be a helmet, mouth guard, protective eyewear, athletic cups, puddings and supporters. Once your child has these items on hand, educate them of proper usage of the items and instill the responsibility of always being safe by using them.
Aside from the coach, qualified adults must be around to supervise kids during practices and games and be committed to watch over them for their safety. Besides knowing the rules and how the game is played, supervisors should also be knowledgeable with injury prevention.
All kids should be properly prepared before playing sports. Jumping into a game right away without proper preparation is only exposing them to danger and the possibility of a major injury. If your child doesn’t know how to swim yet, give him a swimming board to avoid drowning.
Prepare your child mentally, physically and emotionally so that they can play sports to the best of their abilities, excel, learn and most importantly, be safe while doing it. If your child has existing health conditions like asthma consult your doctor and ask for medical clearance before letting him play in sports.
Children who are better prepared for sports are children who can happily play it.
Guide your kids to follow the rules
Condition their bodies to play the sport
Do not allow them to play when they are extremely tired or in pain
Maintain proper hydration
Warm up before playing
Wear protective gear or equipment at all times

Why I Recommend Omnicide to Everyone
I had multiple lesions removed from my face by laser treatment. I was told that these would take 7-10 days to heal. After applying Omnicide Gel the surgical sites were no longer visible in 2 days. *
