Report: Two-year study on youth football safety released

Below are some intersting findings on injuries to youth football players.  To read the entire article, click on the 'Links' tab to the left.

The study, which encompassed more than 4,000 players ages 5-14, documented player health and any sustained injuries during the course of the 2012 and 2013 seasons. 

Study findings include:

  • Nearly 90 percent of youth players did not sustain an injury that resulted in missing a game or practice.
  • Of the 22.4 percent of players who reported an injury, 70 percent returned to play the same day. 
  • Of the 11.9 percent of players who missed a game or practice because of injury, 60 percent returned to play within seven days.
  • Bruises were the most common injuries (34 percent), followed by ligament sprains (16 percent).
  • 4.3 percent of players in the study sustained a concussion.
  • Players were more likely to sustain an injury during games than in practices.
  • No catastrophic head, neck or heat-related injuries were reported among the more than 4,000 players during the study’s two-year span.
