Johnson & Johnson Sponsors Free Youth Sports Safety Clinics

April 18, 2011: 02:49 AM EST
In response to a national survey finding that few parents are confident that coaches of sports teams are adequately trained to identify and prevent injuries, Safe Kids USA and Johnson & Johnson are sponsoring a youth sports safety campaign to educate parents, coaches and league organizers in safety skills. More than 3.5 million children are treated for sports-related injuries each year, half of which are preventable. Only 29 percent of parents feel coaches are able to detect symptoms of, or prevent, sports injuries. A majority did feel that their youth athletes took safety precautions, such as wearing proper equipment. More than 100 free sports safety clinics will be conducted nationwide from April through the summer, funded by Johnson & Johnson.
