Is your little one interested in playing sports? Are you worried about how to keep them safe while they play it? If so, the below tips on keeping kids safe while playing sports can be of interest to you…

Making sure they are wearing the right clothes for the sport

If you have ever played any sort of sport, you will know the importance of theright sort of clothes for sports. Not only will it help them perform better, it will also help to protect your little ones from potential sport related injuries, as well as make your little one more comfortable playing the sport. Unfortunately, despite knowing this, parents tend to ignore this fact; simply because sports costumes can sometimes be a little pricyand there’s no guarantee that your kids will stick to said sport for long. However, if you are looking to the safety of your child, then this price is worth paying.

Additional layers of protection

Apart from sports costumes, almost every sport has an additional layer of protection that you can provide your child with; especially when he is still learning the sport and vulnerable to accidents. Helmets, mouthguards Brisbane, gloves, groin protectors, knee guards, shin protectors…these all fall into said additional layer of protection. What is important though, is you stressing to your child that they should not depend on this protection; and that they learn and do their part in trying to shield themselves against injuries. Learning to fall is almost as important as learning how to fight… 

Protection from the sun

We are pretty sure you have notice how fierce the sun can get now-a-days; even in the winter months. This is largely thanks to the depletion in the ozone layer; which whether admit or not, is us humans’ fault. So though your helmet and other protective layers might help to save your child from serious injuries, or from ever having to wear perfect full dentures, but it might not be affective enough save him from the effects of the UV rays. Do your research and find a sunblock that is suitable for your part of the world. If your child is prone to acne, the exposure to the sun can also be a reason for it; find a sunblock more suitable for their sensitive skin.

Protection from within

When your child is still only starting out on their selected sport, and you don’t feel they are very serious about it, it can be tempting to send them in for practice with whatever is convenient to make in their lunch box. However, the proper pre and post foods and drinks not only help them perform better (which can have a result in them holding on to their interest on the sport), it also prevents them from getting injuriesjust like a warm up or a cool down exercise does. It’s also important that you stress on the importance of keeping themselves hydrated for the same reason.
