Sports Safety: Grades 9-12

What to do and what not to do when training and playing sports. That is the focus of two activities designed for teens. In the first activity, individuals read research about factors that contribute to safe sport participation and share their findings with the class in the form of posters. Then class members fill out a worksheet identifying what athletes should or should not do when training or engaging in sports.
