Your child can start playing tackle football at age 5, but most play flag first. When these veryRead More young kids run into each other, it's not much of an impact to be honest. I'm not saying they never give each other a good hit because it happens occasionally. I never thought of it as dangerous, though. One important note; if the helmet is making the hit, the kid is doing it wrong, and the coach will say so. A high impact helmet to helmet hit is dangerous. I watched my oldest nephew play football from age 7 into high school. He had a concussion which resulted from an under inflated helmet used during a hard hit in practice. He also had a huge helmet-to-helmet hit during a game. The risk is real, but the benefits are many; confidence, competition, brotherhood, team play, and physical fitness, to name a few.

Being in automobile accidents causes more deaths, so do motor-scooters/motor-cycles, skateboards,Read More etc....all kill more kids than football.....! Kids cannot be wrapped & stored away to keep them safe. They must learn to cope with and to withstand adversity.
