Continual decline in youth sports
How can we combat the many problems in youth sports?
- Traumatic Injuries
- Uneducated coaches
- Early Specialization
- Lack of medical attention
Youth Sports by the numbers:
- Decline from 50.2 million participants to 45.7 million participants from 2009 to 2014
- Children between 5-14 yrs account for 40% off sports related injuries treated in hospitals
- By age 13, 70% of kids will have dropped out of youth sports
Unless changes are made to the organization of youth sports in America, there will be a continual decline in youth sports participation. Because there's minimal legal action taking place to improve youth sports, we developed an organization to try and develop a universally safer youth sporting atmosphere.
