Soccer is a relatively safe sport, but like all sports there are always risks.
Coaches and parents need to reduce the risks by being aware of:
Here is a list of different types of injuries that coaches and parents should be aware of. Having knowledge of potential injuries and what to do about them is half the solution.
Also, there should always be access to a well stocked first aid kit at every practice.
One of the best ways to prevent many of these injuries is being properly trained and conditioned.
One of my big concerns is that many kids come to soccer without the physical background for success…which also means they can be more likely to get injuried.
As parents please make sure your so and daughter has the proper physical conditioning to be safe and happy on the soccer pitch.
