Injury Risk May Rise When Kids Play Just One Sport

Injury Risk May Rise When Kids Play Just One Sport

Focusing too much on playing one favorite sport probably isn’t a good idea for kids under 12, researchers report.

That’s because specializing in a single sport seems to increase a child’s risk of injury, researchers say.

“Young athletes should participate in one competitive sport per season, and take at least three months off (non-consecutive) from competition per year,” said the study’s leader, Dr. Neeru Jayanthi. He’s a physician with Emory Sports Medicine and an associate professor of orthopaedics and family medicine at Emory University in Atlanta.

For the study, Jayanthi’s team assessed the risk of sports-related injuries among nearly 1,200 young athletes. After tracking their training schedules over the course of three years, the investigators found that nearly 40 percent of the athletes suffered an injury during the study period.

The findings also showed that injured athletes began specializing in one sport at an average age younger than 12 years. In addition, nearly

Flexibility Training Tips

Flexibility Training Tips

 

There are 3 primary parts of exercise: cardiovascular exercise, strengthening exercises, and flexibility training. And let’s face it—those first 2 typically get more emphasis. Cardiovascular exercise (running, for example—anything which gets your pulse up) and strength training (lifting weights) come with some rather immediate outcomes. They help us build muscle and lose weight , all while helping us be more fit. It takes longer to see those advantages.
But here’s the deal: flexibility becomes more significant as you grow old. Being limber can help battle those aches and pains related to aging; stretching can help you maintain better joint health. It can also make those daily jobs—carrying groceries, going up and down stairs etc. much easier.

Irving, Texas – UTEP sophomore Tobi Amusan was named the Conference USA Track Co-Athlete of the Week as announced by the league office Tuesday afternoon.

In her first outdoor race of the season, the sprinter ran the nation’s fastest time this year in the 100m hurdles (12.63).

Before the race could start there was a 30-minute delay due to a camera malfunction, but that didn’t freeze Amusan from running the ninth-fastest time in NCAA (outdoor) history.

The sprinter set the school record and looks to carry that momentum with her to Austin, Texas, where she will compete against some of the best around the nation at the Texas Relays. Amusan will compete in the 4x100m relay and the 100m hurdles on Friday.

This year’s meet will be available online at
