Help Soccer Become Safer
By: Gavin Russo
How I can accomplish this
I am planning to raise awareness through this website to make soccer safer for children. This is important to me because I myself play soccer and their are many injuries in games, I would like to cut down on these. Some people don't believe that soccer is a physical game but it actually is. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics soccer has the same amount of contact as boxing, football, ice hockey, lacrosse and more.
Injuries in soccer
Some injuries in soccer are...
High Ankle Sprain
How we can prevent these
Peripheral vision lets you see others that are not directly in front of you. Improving your peripheral vision allows you to see players and movement further from center while still maintaining your focus on the ball or play.
Improving Spatial Awareness
Always keep your head up
Look across the field before receiving the ball.
Always practice by setting up game-like scenarios and working on your total field peripheral vision, imagination and special intelligence
- Diet: Food is energy. Everything you put into your body in the 24 hours before a game will effect how you play.
- Stretch: You should always start stretching the day before the big game. Tight muscles are responsible for countless injuries that are easily avoidable.
- Routine: Almost all athletes in the world have specific routines that they follow every game day.
Sleep: Everyone knows the importance of sleep. Try to get between eight and nine hours of sleep the night before your game to rest your body and mind.
