For example, don’t use a baseball batting helmet while you are playing football. Beside them, eye protection, elbow, wrists and knee guards are recommended.

The next step is to warm up. Many children are excited when they should play sports, so often forgot to warm up before they start. It is important to stretch your muscles and warm them before running or any type of physical activity. It requires only 5 minutes. Equally important is to know the rules of that sport.
