    This is so important! The small investment of getting the right equipment or anything else to keep your kids safe, will always be less than the price of a broken bone or torn muscle. Especially for lower income families, medical expenses from sports injuries can do a lot of damage. Not to mention the pain of having to see your children in so much pain and anguish. Thanks for writing!
