Flag/Touch  Football Some people think touch and flag football are safe sports  because  pads  and  helmets  are  not  normally  re- quired. However, what usually starts as a friendly game often  turns  into  a  rough  game  of  tackle.  The  shoulder block is the only block permitted in touch and flag foot- ball. It is done between the waist and shoulder with both feet contacting the ground at the moment of contact. To  prevent  collisions,  teams  should  leave  a  fumbled football lying on the ground. Neither team should be allowed to advance the football; it should belong to the team that last had possession. When  playing  football,  wear  a  mouthpiece  to protect your teeth and your tongue. Don’t wear chains, rings, and metal wrist bands. If you wear glasses, secure them and make sure the lenses are shatter-proof. Golf When  playing  golf,  you  should  wear  socks  and well-fitted shoes to prevent blisters caused by long periods of walking and turning. When other players are hitting, watch their shots to avoid being hit by a ball or club. You should not hit your ball until the players ahead of you are well out of range. To keep from damaging your skin from the sun’s rays, you may want to wear a protective  cap  and  sun  screen. Avoid  the  golf  course  during  electrical  storms  and severe weather. Golf clubs make excellent electricity conductors. If you get caught on the course, keep away from  isolated  trees,  wire  fences,  hilltops,  small  sheds, and shelters in exposed areas. Try to reach thick timber or a depression in the ground or get near a steep cliff. If caught in an electrical storm, do not delay; seek shelter. Squash/Handball/Racquetball Most  injuries  from  racquet  sports  occur  when players do not use the proper eye protection. These injuries include hemorrhaging of the eye area, cuts, and corneal abrasions. A racquetball travels about 80 miles per  hour  when  hit.  Goggles  without  lenses  offer  little protection.  A  small  ball,  like  the  one  you  use  in racquetball or squash, compresses when you hit it and can  penetrate  open  frames.  How  can  you  protect  your eyes? Learning how to duck faster isn’t the answer. Wearing  the  proper  eye  protection  while  playing racquetball  is  not  only  safe,  it  is  mandatory.  Wear impact-resistant  eyewear  with  either  molded  poly- carbonate wraparound protectors or lenses mounted in sturdy  frames.  This  requirement  applies  to  all participants  (military,  family  members,  civilians,  and guests)  at  all  times.  The  people  that  issue  Navy recreational  equipment  should  provide  eye  protection with racquetball rackets. In addition, wear a mouthpiece to protect your teeth and tongue. Skateboarding Skateboarding   is   a   sport   rapidly   growing   in popularity. Unfortunately, as its popularity increases, so do mishaps and injuries. Mishaps frequently occur when skateboarders lack balance and body control or haven’t had  enough  practice.  Several  conditions  contribute  to skateboard mishaps and injuries: lack of protective equipment,  poor  board  maintenance,  and  uneven  riding surfaces. Fractures are the most common type of injuries for skateboarders. Some deaths have been reported, mostly  from  people  falling  off  boards  or  colliding  with cars. When  skateboarding,  wear  protective  equipment, such  as  slip-resistant  shoes,  helmets,  and  specially designed padding. This equipment may not fully protect skateboardcrs from fractures, but it can reduce the number and severity of cuts and scrapes. Wrist braces and  special  skateboarding  gloves  also  help  absorb  the impact of a Fall. With protective equipment, you must look  for  comfort,  design,  and  function.  The  equipment should not interfere with your movement, vision, or hearing. Roller Skating and In-Line Skating Roller  skating  is  an  old  sport  in  which  a  renewed interest has developed. In-line skating is a relatively new and exciting sport. The same injuries and mishaps we talked about earlier on skateboarding apply here. The 11-11
