Suggestions For The Control Of Athletics
Source: Disturbances Of The Heart
1. Gymnasiums and athletic grounds in connection with all colleges,
preparatory schools, seminaries and high schools are essential, and
they should be added to grammar schools whenever possible.
2. Physical training and athletic games, and perhaps some type of
military training are valuable for the proper development of youth.
3. Some forms of competitive games and some competitive feats are
valuable in stimulating training and healthful sports.
4. All competitive sports and all hard training should be under the
advice and supervision of a medical council or a medical trainer.
Competitive sports which are generally recognized as harmful, mostly
on account of their duration as related to the age of the
competitors, should be prohibited.
5. Each boy should be carefully examined by a competent physician to
decide as to his general health, his limitations and the special
training necessary to perfect him or to overcome any defect. Such
examinations are even more essential in schools for girls.
6. In all group training, the weak individuals should be noted by
the medical trainer, and they should receive special and more
carefully graded exercise.
7. In all strenuous training or competitive athletic work, the
participators should all be examined more or less frequently and
more or less carefully for heart strain and albuminuria and also for
a too great increase of blood pressure.
8. All training and all athletic sports should be graded to the age
of the boy or girl and not necessarily to his or her size. Many an
overgrown boy is injured by athletic prowess beyond his heart
