Should youth contact sports be banned due to the rise of concussions? Around 45 million kids participate in a sport; with a high level of youth athletes comes an equally high chance of injury. In the research, evidence from peer edited journals about concussions and sports related head trauma in youth are used. The preliminary conclusion is that youth contact sports should be banned for children under the age of 12, because of the short term and long term effects on the brain from concussions.
