Participating in sports and recreational activities provide physical and psychosocial health benefits that can last a lifetime. Unfortunately, these health benefits come with the risk of injury. Experts estimate that of the 213 million Americans (age six and older) who participate in sports and fitness activities each year, nearly 9 million will suffer a sports-related injury. Young athletes account for more than half of these injuries, most of which are musculoskeletal injuries of the lower and upper extremities.

The good news is that half of these injuries are preventable. Several million devastating injuries can be avoided each year by providing the information, training, tools and resources that help keep young athletes safe and healthy. In response to the rapid rise in youth sports injuries and lack of helpful educational resources, the HSS Sports Safety Program was established in 2015 with a generous donation from HSS Board member James Dinan and his wife, Elizabeth Miller, through the Dinan Family Foundation.
