Soccer Safety: Sports Medicine Tips For Injury Prevention

Our Summit Orthopedics OrthoQUICK clinics and sports medicine team have the sport-specific experience to handle your young athlete’s injury quickly and efficiently—we also have expert tips to help your child enjoy the game of soccer safely.

Soccer is an active contact sport. Racing, jumping, and kicking are part of the game, but injuries don’t have to be if you and your young players take preventative measures. We support the preventative soccer safety tips offered by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

We offer these tips because we want to see your aspiring soccer player compete safely. With a few preventative steps, your child can safely reap soccer’s benefits: physical activity and lessons in sportsmanship that will serve children well as they move forward in life.
