From the Paper:

"In addition, a number of states do not have a daily physical education requirement, and even in those that do, many children in physical education classes are not meeting the desired physical fitness goals. Finally, an increasing number of American children are engaging in sedentary activities such as television viewing and web "surfing," trends that are increasingly occupying significant amounts of children's free time (Dietz, 1990). There are a wide range of approaches to help reduce sports-related injuries in young athletes such as coaching education, parent education, proper equipment; in addition, the establishment of fundamental fitness abilities, including preparatory muscle conditioning as a preventative health measure should not be overlooked. According to the American College of Sports Medicine, up to 50 percent of all injuries sustained by children while playing organized sports are likely preventable (Smith, Andrish, & Micheli, 1993)."
