Keep Weekend Fun Safe

Keep Weekend Fun Safe

A weekend football game with friends in the neighborhood park may be fun, but you should keep safety in mind. Legs and knees are prime candidates for injury in adult "weekend warriors," according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. To reduce the risk for serious injury, wear helmets and shoulder pads, and play touch or flag football instead of tackle football. Warm up before playing and stretch after playing.
