  • Medical literature demonstrates significant risk of permanent brain injury for serious soccer players.
  • Medical literature demonstrates a high incidence of concussions among youth soccer players.
  • The American Academy of Pediatrics classifies soccer as a "contact/collision sport"

"'We've got a problem here,' said Dr. David Janda, an orthopedic surgeon.

He recommends the use of helmets and light-weight balls in instructional leagues."
