Have a question?

(HealthDay News) -- While playing organized sports is a great way to get exercise, buses and locker rooms may be perfect breeding grounds for infectious disease.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how to keep your team healthier:

  • Do not share water bottles, mouth guards, towels or other personal items.
  • Encourage personal hygiene that includes frequent showers and washing of sports equipment.
  • Enforce pre-sports physicals to rule out skin infections and ensure that players are up to date on vaccines.
