I am planning on doing my research on injuries in youth sports. I want to research why serious injuries such as torn ACL’s, serious rib and back injuries, and more happen in youth sports and can affect these athletes for the rest of their lives. I think it is crazy how competitive and serious sports for kids are from 5-12th grade are. The raised level of competitiveness and commitment has yielded many positive results that society praises, but also has many negative ones people ignore. Youth sports injuries are serious because they can impact athletes lives forever. I wanna research this and determine wether this increased level of youth sports is worth it for kids considering the injury risks and the life-long effects of those injuries.
