I took it to mean that he may want to lessen the chance of college aged players getting concussions

That is possible. I know a number of neuro surgeons have written papers against it. However boxing is also associated with ead trauma,so is soccer. Why not those games.

I also foiund it rather interesting that he seemed to think it was too violent for boys but war was not too violent for women if they wanted to do it. Not sure there is a relationship but found it interesting.

I agree with the other sports. Comparing the war to sports though is a stretch. My son is playing middle school football and I do worry about injuries. I think that safety measures need to be in place and strictly followed for sports of all kinds for kids in elementary school up to college. That's only my opinion and this being topix I definitely expect an opposing viewpoint.

Back years ago when I was overseas in the service we had football and it was played by college rules and full equiptment. The games were pretty rough and drerw big crowds because there was not a lot else to do. I worked the games providing emergency medical coverage. Most of the injuries were to legs and arms. The big factor was the guy was not in proper physical condition to play the game the way it was being played. These guys hit hard and wewre serious about the game. Everybody enjoyed them but there were a lot of injuries. I do not recall any head injuries. Football is a rough game and the plyers have to be in good physical condition, still might get injured. Almost all the leg injuries probably would have been less severe if the the player had been in better physical condition. I beleive a lot of kids get injured for the same reason. I know the PT is not that popular but it is absolutely necessary if a person is going to play that sport, the other thing is proper fitting equiptment. The player neds to stay in condition the year around if they are going to play. Frequently that is not the case. When the season is over they kick back until the next season or spring practice then a summer break and then back out again. The PT needs to be continued as long as the player intends to play the game. It has to do with the way the body works.Also diet is important, kids need the right diet to devlope the kind of conditioning required for the game.Rules can be changed but the injuries risk will be there as long as it is a contact sport. Accidents can happen regardless of the physical condition bu the better physical condition the player is in the less sever the injury is likely to be.

The other thing is the proper way to fall and take a hit to reduce the effect of the blow.This falls on the coach to make sure the players are being trained properly. There are other factors involved too. Hopefully there will be more input.

I wish your kid good luck and success

I probably could've guessed you were in the military from your use of PT. I've not heard that since I was a youngin. That and front and center along with the phrase we need to police the yard.
Anyway I digress, have you thought of volunteering at the school coaching?

In California that involves too many libalities. I do work volunteer work with the military in a couple of areas. I do some work with guys who have a problem with their PT test and in anoter area. I have volunteered to hep at their combat challenge events.
I am trying to get myself ready for one in Feb,but injured my right leg training for it. I should have known better but what can I say ,I messed uI graduated from OHS,way back then. That was in the days of Ray Booher, Jack Chitwood and other old timers.

Sadly to say out here, the libalites and teachers unions prevent a lot of people volunteering for things like coaching.
