Every aspect of our lives require attention to safety. With our children so involved in athletics, injury prevention is crucial.  Safety measures in every sport  have been implemented in an attempt to reduce the chances of players getting hurt.  An easy way to begin looking at safety in athletics is the equipment used for the sport. Helmets for all riding and contact sports, joint protection to avoid injury to knees and elbows, goggles to protect eyes from flying sticks and balls and special footwear, are just a few measures used to keep players safe.   Our 18 inch dolls Carly and Sophia are setting excellent examples of how to stay safe while while staying active. What sports do you play and how do you stay safe while playing?
