Report Intro/Brief:
“The culture of youth sports has been under close scrutiny recently. Parents and athletes are faced with more questions than ever: Are certain sports unsafe? Will the coach know what to do if an athlete is injured? How does an athlete know when to speak up about an injury? With rule changes and a win-at-any-cost mentality, are sports no longer fun?

To better understand what young athletes, parents and coaches are confronted with in youth sports, Safe Kids Worldwide surveyed 1,000 young athletes, 1,005 coaches
and 1,000 parents. Despite greater public awareness about youth sports safety, we still found an alarming gap in what is being done to keep young athletes safe while
playing sports.”
