Experts: Soccer's many moves boost fitness skills
Reuters
Young soccer players may never reach the dazzling athleticism on display at the World Cup in Brazil, but fitness experts say the sport cultivates such a variety of skills that playing it can underpin a lifetime of activity. From aerobic prowess to foot-eye coordination and the ability to turn on a dime, soccer hones the body so even a young baseball or tennis player can benefit from the sport, said Dr. Michael F. Bergeron, executive director of the National Youth Sports Health & Safety Institute, which advocates for health and safety in youth sports.

A heady study: Can football helmets reduce risk of concussion?
By Dorothy L. Tengler
We've all watched the play: The linebacker rushes through the line to tackle the quarterback, the two colliding as their helmets crash together, leaving one or both lying on the field, dazed and possibly unconscious. Of all sports, football holds the highest incidence of concussion. Although collisions are an essential part of the sport, intentionally caused helmet-to-helmet collisions are now banned in most football leagues.

Out of the spotlight, on the sideline, athletic trainers keep athletes going
The Metro Independent
It's easy for fans to see an athletic injury happen: A pitcher tweaks his throwing arm, a forward pulls up limping or a running back stays on the field after a tackle. The athletic trainers run out to check on the player and the fans start the guessing game. How serious is it? How long will they be on the disabled list?
