Please take the time to sit down with your player and watch the video and then discuss the concept in detail so that they fully understand how best to protect themselves from potentially serious injury. Last but not least, the video includes some very basic exercises to strengthen the neck muscles –THIS IS IMPORTANT - please encourage your player to do these exercises regularly to help assure their opportunity to enjoy the game as safely as possible.
