All The Good in Sports

Tips to Prevent Sports Injuries in Children

The start of the school year also is the start of the sports season for most school age children. Tuition costs and the cost for supplies, clothes, food, and gas may have parents short on cash when it comes to sports equipment for their child. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when thinking about how to get your child ready for the sports season.

First, discuss with your child what he or she really enjoys about sports and which sports he or she likes the best. In today’s economy, it might be necessary for children to decide on one sport instead of three or four. It is far better to be able to provide safe equipment for the one sport the child enjoys the most than to go the cheap route for equipment on 3 or 4 sports and have an injury occur. Medical costs can run into the thousands even for a severe sprain.

Equipment should be sport specific, properly fitting, and include proper safety gear for each sport. Mouth guards and jock cups should never be the piece of equipment left out for boys and girls in contact sports.

More Philosophy On Leadership

As a former business owner with operations in many states, I’d say I have a decent handle on the definition of leadership; what it is and what is supposed to do. Yet, I am often reminded that “Leadership” has become a catch-all term, which is too bad, we are all too quick to label things leadership or proclaim the need for leadership. Some describe what they call “leadership” and when you look closely it looks more like; how to con humans into doing things you want them to do, akin to that famous saying: “Diplomacy is the Art of Letting Others Get Your Way.”

Not long ago, I talked with a Floridian Author of multiple books on leadership. I must say; I am impressed with his sincerity, ethical base, stick-to-it-ness, character and truth seeking – that’s pretty rare. Every once in a while someone comes along, and you just think to yourself – wow, good job.

There is a good book titled; “Outliers” perhaps you’ve read it, one thing I’ve found is that just because someone is good at something, doesn’t mean they will make a good coach, instructor, mentor, or leader. Some would say true

Alternatives To Reality, Every Day

The reality of becoming famous is not something most people would enjoy. When I was younger, I shared a flat in the city of Bristol and above us, on the next floor, were the pop band known as ‘Stackridge’. They were one of a new wave of creative groups in the 1970s and had toured all over England, enjoying a growing following and signing a record deal with a famous label in London. Unfortunately, the money was slow to arrive, and even though they topped the bill and wowed audiences up and down the land, they still couldn’t afford hotel bills. Imagine it: you’ve just left the stage, to wild applause, you’re hot and sweaty but the adrenalin is pumping. You stagger to the bar, down a few drinks, and know this: what you’ve got to look forward to is sleeping in the van with six other people. On mattresses. No lights, no windows, no toilets, no minibar. England in that era didn’t have any chains of cheap hotels like it has now. There were no motels, like there are in America. It was all about sleeping in the van and eating foul food in motorway service areas.

Stop Youth From Dying In Sports

Recently the news media seems to be filled with one tragic story after another of youngsters dying from sports and/or other physically demanding activities. What in the world is going on with our youths’ health?

Let me make this perfectly clear before continuing, I am not pointing fingers, assigning blame or declaring it’s the work of the Lord for the rash of tragedies befallen our young athletes. I am simply sickened by the mishaps and want to call attention to them so perhaps someone smarter than I can arrive at an answer which will stop this appalling trend.

Although all of these deaths are awful, some can be contributed to being the result of a purely weird accident. A baseball player warming up before a game is struck by a thrown pitch and dies, I see no reason to go into the details of the event as the family has suffered enough, but it was a rare quirk of events resulting in the tragic accident.

This type of accident can not be avoided. I read a sudden gush of advice from self-appointed sports gurus about how and where to warm up, preventing players from being
