Participation in baseball and other team sports has countless benefits for kids beyond being good exercise. Good self esteem, stronger communication skills, learning how to cooperate and contribute to a team are a few. Along with the positives however, are risks for sports injuries that can take the fun out of the game. The ONS Foundation for Clinical Research and Education will present a free program designed to raise awareness of the potential for injuries from “throwing sports” and offer tips for keeping kids on the playing fields and out of the doctor’s office. The program is being co-sponsored by the OGRCC (Old Greenwich-Riverside Community Center), and will take place at Eastern Middle School, 51 Hendrie Avenue in Riverside, CT.
Admission is free but reservations are required. To register for Preventing Throwing Injuries, call 637-3659 or 869-3131, or email email@example.com .
