  • Keep Kids Safe When Playing Sports


    September brings school back in session for children all over the world, and with that comes school sports.

    Every three minutes a child in the U.S. is treated for a sports-related concussion.

    Don't think it's just football players – or boys – who bang their heads. In sports in which girls and boys participate, girls suffer a higher percentage of concussions, according to a 2013 Game Changers report by Safe Kids Worldwide.

    For parents and members of the community who coach fall sports like football and soccer, make sure you have the latest information on concussions.

    Concussions aren't the only sports injury to be aware of. Knee injuries are also common, with female athletes eight times more likely to have knee injuries than male athletes. Read more about these common sports injuries here.

    Back-to-School Safety Tips


    As summer draws to a close and children start heading back to school, family life can get pretty hectic. It's important to remember – and share with your children – some key tips that will help keep them safe and healthy throughout the school year.

    Whether children walk, ride their bicycle or take the bus to school, it is vitally important that they – and the motorists around them – take proper safety precautions.

    Get lots more back-to-school safety tips from NSC here.
