To guide kids and parents alike through the causes and effects of sports injuries as well as their prevention, Washington University and the St. Louis Children’s Young Athlete Center, which provides traditional and comprehensive sports medicine services to young athletes, is hosting Play Fit, Stay Fit!, a free open house event.

Kids age 8 and older are invited to take part in a day of fun, free activities, including warm-up exercises with physical therapists, games, Ask-the-Doctor booths, wholesome snacks, and great giveaways. Orlando Pace, former offensive tackle for the St. Louis Rams, will meet kids in the Fan Zone alongside Rampage from the Rams and Louie from the St. Louis Blues.

Stick around as clinicians from St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Washington University Orthopedics lead a series of informative and interactive presentations focused on the topics most relevant to your child’s safety on the field, ice or court, such as sports injury prevention, concussions, sports anxiety, and heart conditions in the young athlete.

Play Fit, Stay Fit! will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday, August 8 at St. Louis Children’s Specialty Care Center, 13001 North Outer 40 in Town & Country. The event is geared toward young athletes ages 8 and older, but is free to everyone who attends.
