...will you let your kids play contact sports? Concussions are a real danger and many are keeping their kids out of football, and I am sure hockey and lacross. My son plays all those sports but his concussions occurred just ice skating, warming up, helmet on. He just lost his balance and fell backwards and was out for a few minutes. The other time ese wiping out on a ski hill. I never minded when he was younger but he is playing with the big boys now in high school. I will admit, I get nervous. Both my kids played hockey, dd was the only girl on the team. But they were /are in a no check league, one it's a house league and we travel enough with other sports. Second, I come from s hockey playing family and I know too many injuries shoulders and knees from checking even in young players. The other issue in sports has been doping. Does that concern you? My guy is still small but if he starts looking too beefy, I might get suspicious.
