Did you know that...

  • High school athletes account for an estimated 2 million injuries each year

  • Female high school athletes get more concussions than males

  • Basketball is the leading cause of sports-related injuries for girls (football for boys)

We need to think of ways to keep everyone safe while they enjoy sports.

Your Task:

  1. Watch and Learn: Watch the short video about common sports injuries.

  2. Think of Solutions: Come up with two simple ideas that could help prevent injuries in sports at your school. This could be anything from using better safety gear to teaching athletes safer playing techniques.

  3. Write Your Pitch: Write a short message explaining your ideas to your school board. Tell them how your suggestions could help reduce injuries and why making these changes is important.
