All over the nation American males are tossing and kicking and running with footballs, all the way from eight-year-olds in the backyard to junior and senior high and college teams to the big bruisers of the professional leagues. Football is a rough contact sport and inevitably will produce its full quota of bumps and bruises, strains and sprains, cuts and gashes. Most of these aren't serious and the lads concerned are back in the game shortly. A thorough medical examination is highly important for boys preparing to go out for football to make certain that a lad has no physical conditions that should be noted before he begins the rigorous training and hard knocks of the game. Proper physical conditioning hardens the body and increases resistance to fatigue, thus helping to prevent injury. A minimum of three weeks of conditioning are recommended prior to the first game of the season. Coaches and physicians are alert to the fact that many injuries occur when the player is tiring and thus less alert. Careful coaching enables the players to perform better and thus become less prone to injury. Good officiating makes for better games and also helps to protect players. Proper equipment and facilities also are important to reduce injuries. Good first aid procedures and medical care, with a physician readily available for practice drills and on the bench during games, are major factors in cutting down on serious injuries. Precautions against the extreme heat of .early season days also arc important. Many coaches are now scheduling the hot weather workouts in early morning and late afternoon to avoid the heat of the day. The old rule against drinking water during drills and games has long since been proved invalid and dangerous. Water and salt is necessary to replace fluids lost through copious sweating. If your boy is playing on an organized team, the chances are good that all of these safeguards are observed. If most of his playing is done on a vacant lot in the afternoons and on Saturdays, 'it becomes the parents' responsibility to see that the player has the benefit of the safe guarding principles.
