Seguridad en los Deportes

Los deportes son muy buenos para los niños. El deporte puede ayudar a la coordinación física de un niño, su condición física, y su autoestima. Los deportes también pueden enseñar a los niños sobre el trabajo en equipo y su autodisciplina.

Pero los niños son más susceptibles sufrir una lesión cuando participen en lose deportes. Esto es porque su cuerpo todavía está creciendo y su coordinación está todavía desarrollándose.

La mayoría de las lesiones deportivas en la infancia se producen cuando:

  • Los niños no saben qué hacer para mantenerse a salvo cuando se juega un deporte

  • Los niños no tienen el equipo adecuado para practicar un deporte - o no tienen ningún equipo en absoluto

  • Los niños no están en buena forma física para jugar el deporte

Estos consejos de seguridad pueden ayudar a prevenir las lesiones deportivas en los niños:

  • Los niños deben usar el equipo de seguridad adecuado.

  • El campo de juego o la debe ser seguro.

  • Los niños deben estar físicamente en forma y mentalmente preparados.

  • Los niños que practican un deporte deben ser vigilados por un adulto que haga cumplir las reglas de seguridad.

  • Los niños deben recibir suficientes líquidos durante y después de los deportes.
