Well I guess my girls are the oddballs (not surprising) - they were both injured via contact. One was pushed in a basketball game resulting in her hand moving when trying to receive a pass resulting in the finger break - the girl did get a foul called on her, and my daughter continued to play not wanting to be pulled from the game by complaining of her finger hurting - she made the basket to tie the game and then made the winning shot to win it. Never said a peep about her finger until a while after she came home and told me her finger hurt - I didn't think it was anything but figured to be safe as it was a bit swollen I'd bring her to be looked --- good thing I did.
The other was hit by another girl falling into her (not in sport at a pep rally) and her knee went back - she too just complained a little about it and went on playing and working out.
funny how these kids ignore and play through the pain. I think the lack of injury my girls get in overuse is we do have them in their off seasons go to sports performance training. It helps them develop overall and works on their athletic ability throughout their bodies.
I have seen alot of their peers doing way too much - we limited where they can only play one sport on a club level and then they choose one other that is more for strictly enjoyment. The funny thing is their competitive and enjoyment sports are the same ones, but opposite.
