Preparing Your Child to Play Football

June 21st, 2007

Preparing your child to play football can pay big dividends in the long run. Football is a rough and tumble sport in which children, if not properly supervised, trained, and equipped, can sustain serious injury. The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons has classified football as one of the four top activities among children most likely to cause injury. Because it is a contact sport, football, (not including flag football) is not recommended for very young children. Older children between the ages of 8 and 14 who express an interest in the sport will more likely enjoy a football experience. A smart parent can begin at home by physically preparing a child to play football.
