Concussions are drawing more attention, but some advocates are debating how to reduce preventable deaths from sudden cardiac arrest and heat stroke.
I think this is important to share because so many kids are getting hurt/dying and it’s not necessary. I think sports are important and helpful for many kids, but we should not be putting them in danger.
Especially preseason practices: even if athletes have been following a strength and conditioning program over the summer months, going from working out on their own to suddenly engaging in strenuous workouts under a lot more pressure during the hottest months of the year is a shock for even the most in-shape athlete. Add a culture of masculinity and toughness in some sports like football that doesn’t leave kids a lot of room to speak up if something really doesn’t feel right, and it’s no wonder people are getting heat stroke and exhaustion. This is something coaches really need to be aware of.
