Sports Injury Prevention (PIPYS)
 

The Program for Injury Prevention in Youth Sports (PIPYS) encourages children to get the exercise they need, build strength and learn teamwork. While the benefits outweigh the risks, sports can sometimes lead to injuries. Every year, more than 3.5 million children and teens in the U.S. are treated for a sports-related injury. We believe that reducing injuries enables athletes to reach their potential and stay on a lifetime path to better health.
