In 2012, in recognition of April as National Youth Sports Safety Month, MomsTeam asked 30 experts to write a blog answering two questions: first, how or why did they get into their field, and second, how have they made a difference in the life of a youth athlete in the past year. The blog project was a huge success. This April we are reprising some of the blogs from two years ago and asking some of our new Twitter friends to join the party.
One of those we heard from two years ago was Kelly Rider, M.Ed., ATC, LAT, CSCS, an athetic trainer at the Dexter-Southfield School in Brookline, Massachusetts and head coach of a girl's ice hockey team at a Boston area high school.
