When it comes to playing sports, it can be both fun and dangerous. Playing sports is not all that it is cracked up to be, it can have serious consequences that could affect a person’s entire life. No matter what sport anyone signs up for, they are taking a risk of getting seriously injured. Anyone can get seriously injured during sports, no matter what age and gender. Everyone deserves to have fun while playing the sport they love while also taking safety into precaution.
Abstract The process of risk management can be implemented as part of a best practice management system within the sport organization and sport sector. The process enables risk factors that might lead to injuries to be identified and the levels of risk associated with activities to be estimated and evaluated. This information can be utilized proactively by sports governing bodies and participants to identify preventive and therapeutic interventions in order to reduce the frequency of occurrence and/or severity of injuries within their sports. The acceptability of risk within specific sports, however, is dependent on the perceptions of the participants involved to sport activities.
The dangers of football can be decreased by increasing the padding in the protective garments for football players, providing education for football players on the dangers and injuries that can occur, and having daily medical checkups for the players. These tactics will protect the football player from the dangers of the sport of football. The sport of football has many risks and dangers; however, if the protective gear of the players had more padding, than the players would be more protected. The padding would create a small barrier between colliding players and would absorb some of the force from the tackle. In the article, “High School Football’s Benefits Outweigh the Risks,” Ed.
Children who participate in competitive sports at a young age experience more serious negative impacts than positives, including a risk of severe injury, losing
Coaches tend to live beneath a false sense of security that their only responsibility is to further the athletic capabilities if their players both individually, and collectively. This thought that coaches have no obligation to defend their athletes’ mental, and physical safety is absurd. Coaches are not simply caretakers of players, but of people, and therefore hold a moral and legal duty to create a safe environment of play, in order to prevent, and protect their athletes from serious head trauma, or other sports related injuries. Many believe that it is solely medical professionals’ jobs to keep athletes safe, while the majority of sports-world believes that this responsibility is shared among multiple different influences in
In the autobiography The Push, Tommy Caldwell describes his journey as a rock climber and the risks he had to take to get to where he is now. Paul Roberts, in his article Risk, addresses why people take major risks and the addictive factors that are involved, even when they are faced with intense fear. In the Journal of Health Psychology article, Extreme Sports Are Good For Your Health, Eric Brymer and Robert Schweitzer hint on risk and discuss fear as an experience and the relationship that people have with it.
“In the U.S., about 30 million children and teens participate in some form of organized sports, and more than 3.5 million injuries each year” claims Stanford Children’s Health. It’s definitely true that competitive sports can cause all sorts of injuries from big to small. The media teaches people simply that sports leads to horrific injuries and can cause stress, but what the mainstream media hardly discusses are the great benefits of competitive sports. While there may be some negatives to competitive sports, that’s just life, and to add on to that; there are plenty of benefits which are sure to override to media’s facts. Kids should play competitive sports because competitive sports teach children powerful life lessons, contributes to their social and mental stability, and because of the physical gain competitive sports provides.
In synchronized swimming, a diver may dive too far down and bang their head off a wall or the bottom. In baseball, a stray pitch may hit the batter in the face and treat him like how a boxer's fist treats another boxer’s face. The point is that all sports are dangerous. In
According to an article I read, there are 8 million high school students participating in sports and those students can get hurt at any time and they probably know that, but if they had better safety gear they wouldn't have to worry about getting injured. Still even if they improved their gear they could still get hurt but it probably wouldn't hurt as bad because their gear is better and safer. Out of the 8 million student athletes in the U.S. there are probably about half our more it'd them that play a dangerous sport. I think that out of those 4 million or more there are about 3.8 or maybe more kids that get injured while playing these sports. It is important that all these dangerous sports have more protective gear because athletes get hurt a lot while playing these sports, but then it helps them be healthy and being an athlete is not easy but they help people perform to the best of their
Many children who are pushed into a sport will involuntarily injure themselves so they do not have to continue participating (Stenson). Over 3.5 million children and teens ages six to fourteen are injuring themselves purposely participating in sports they do not want to participate in. The highest rates of injury occur in sports that involve contact and collisions. More severe injuries occur during individual sports and recreational activities (Sports Injury Statistics). Although playing the sport can injure the child, so can the practices.
Nicola S. mentions in her article how participants “will hide it in order to feel ‘the same’ as their peers, but this unfortunately can lead to one of the leading causes of death; suicide” ( Source 4). I disagree because the benefits of participating in a sport outweighs the risks it can have. The risks of sports, from increasing suicidal thoughts to physical injuries, are very unlikely to actually occur. These type of situations only take place when people who do not know how to learn sports or don't help getting along with teammates are involved. Nicola states, “When you are physically active, your mind is distracted from daily stressors.
