Soccer is the best sport for kids because it's safe


I would love to debate you on this subject and I have to agree with you soccer is a great sport and is safer than some other sports, but I wouldn't say it is the best sport for kids nor the safest.

I think this will be fun! :D
Debate Round No. 1


Some kids get injured more in football than any other sport. But why don't you shut up and just play it cool I just started


Ummm okay, I don't see why you are so mad this is just a debate. You say more kids get injured in football than any other sport, I don't know if you are referring to American football or American Soccer? I assume you mean American Soccer and I will tell you why soccer is not necessarily the best sport for children.

A study shows American Soccer has a higher injury rate than many contact/collision sports such as field hockey, rugby, basketball, and football, with players younger than age 15.

186,544 soccer-related injuries in 2006
80% affect players under age 24
44% of injuries to players under age 15

As you can see there are much better choices of sports for kids than soccer.
