Report Looks At Poor Sportsmanship Leading To Injuries
(Undated) -- A new report, Changing the Culture of Youth Sports, takes an in depth look at behaviors that lead to serious sports injuries. Kate Carr with Safe Kids USA also says that one in four young athletes reported it is normal to commit hard fouls and play rough to "send a message" during a game. It's important, she says, for parents, coaches and kids have a discussion to put an end to dirty play. She says professional athletes need to do a better job as well of setting examples of good sportsmanship.
