Sports are incredibly formative and exciting experiences for athletes as they help to develop skills, memories, and friendships that will last a lifetime. Work ethic and commitment, championship games and big goals… these are things that athletes will value and cherish for the rest of their lives.
However, there are inherent risks that athletes face while playing or practicing the sports they love and it is important that they are properly protected. There have been recent advancements to produce lightweight protective equipment that is far superior to years past, and even technological developments to create new equipment to help address pressing safety issues. The constant evolution is important to continue to provide youth athletes the ability to participate in the sports they love.
There are considerable benefits to being adequately protected while on the playing surface that make sports better for all those involved.
