As a mother of kids who have been on soccer, flag football, and swim/dive teams in just this past year, I know injuries. Luckily, we’ve been pretty fortunate and haven’t had too many serious injuries. Just lots of bumps, bruises, and other pains.
But mostly, happy faces, tired bodies, and plenty of bandages. This year, we’re sporting Safeskin colorful sports wraps. I wrote a post last week all about Safeskin (including a pretty amazing giveaway…).
Sports are fun for kids, teach them important physical skills as well as how to interact with their peers. But sports often do lead to injuries, and it’s good to be prepared.

Did you know? Each year, more than 3.5 million children under age 14 receive medical treatment for sports-related injuries, with strains and sprains among the most common complaints.
All too often, I send my kids out to their practices and games with nothing but their uniform, shoes, and a water bottle. I love this graphic about what to pack in the gym bag:
