Keeping spectators safe
NASC
Anyone in the events business knows that one big concern is keeping spectators safe.

To thrive, many young female athletes need a lot more food
NPR
Participation in sports by girls and young women has soared in recent decades — by 560 percent among high school students since 1972, and 990 percent among college students, according to the Women's Sports Foundation. But many girls aren't eating enough to satisfy the physical demands of those sports, scientists say, and that's putting them at risk for health problems that can last a lifetime.

WGHP-TV
For the most part, no parent wants to be “that” mom or dad. You know, the really loud one in the often intense world of youth sports. But then, you're on the sidelines, rooting for your kid and it just happens. Even the seemingly simple and encouraging "Come on, you can do it!" may be more harmful than helpful, according to researchers with the Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport.

Sharon Herald
It was the first week of football practice this year at Southmoore High in Oklahoma, and Chris Trobaugh spotted the signs right away. After being an athletic trainer for almost a decade, he knew what to look for when it comes to heat illness.

Even short bouts of activity may help kids' health
National Institute of Child Health and Human Development via HealthDay News
Even brief spurts of exercise may benefit children, researchers report. Their study of 28 healthy, normal-weight children found that doing three minutes of moderate-intensity walking every half hour over three hours of sitting led to lower levels of blood sugar and insulin, compared to another day when the children sat for three hours straight.

Culture of 'toughing it out' still prevalent in youth sports
The Bellingham Herald
For many high school athletes, the cost of a concussion can sometimes be overshadowed by the need to play. Alice Hiebert, who is going into her junior year at Bellingham High School, suffered a concussion during a preseason game in Seattle last fall. Hiebert missed a week of school, and dealt with headaches for the first few days after the incident. Hiebert can recall multiple times where she chose to keep playing through some particularly painful moments.
