The Answer Sheet: youth sports injuries

How many injuries before kids should hang up their cleats?

How many concussions would you allow your child to have before you decided that perhaps he or she should retire from the travel soccer team? In the past month alone I have heard about several dozen injuries to young athletes, both on school and athletic teams, and I am starting to wonder just how many families are so obsessed with sports that the child’s health suffers.
