Female Teen Athletes: At Risk for Injury?
Teen girls who are athletes face unique obstacles when it comes to their bodies and how well they perform.
Knees Are Casualties of Women's Sports
Active women are at least twice as likely to suffer serious knee injuries as men, but it's not just athletes who are at risk.
Bicycle, In-Line Skating, Skateboarding Safety--Identifying High-Risk Situations
Most crashes involving children on bicycles, in-line skates, or skateboards occur because the child breaks a traffic rule.
Water Safety and Teens
Encourage your adolescent to take swimming, diving, and water safety or rescue classes to give him/her the skills needed to swim and dive safely.
Bicycle, In-Line Skating, Skateboarding Safety--Prevention
Skateboards should never be used on surface streets. Your child should wear protective gear such as helmets, padding, and closed-toe and slip-resistant shoes.
