Head hits rare in youth football practices

U. PITTSBURGH (US) — A recent study found that children who play youth football are 26 times more likely to suffer a concussion in a game than in practice.“This finding suggests that reducing contact-practice exposures in youth football, which some leagues have done recently, will likely have little effect on reducing concussion risk, as few concussions actually occur in practice,” says Anthony Kontos, associate professor in the department of orthopaedic surgery at the University of Pittsburgh.
