STEROID ABUSE AMONG KIDS

The average age that a child begins taking dietary supplements is 10.8 years old. Few people realize that these products are unregulated – that no one is verifying that what’s on the label of the container is what is in that container. As a result, some are spiked with banned substances like anabolic steroids, stimulants, and other contaminants. 

Little League parents, coaches and volunteers should be aware of the prevalence of the use of anabolic steroids and other Appearance and Performance Enhancing Drugs (APEDs) among today’s young athletes. The Taylor Hooton Foundation is proud to offer one of our education programs in partnership with Little League Baseball and Softball. This 30-minute eLearning course, hosted by Bob Costas, is a real eye-opener for parents and is essential for every coach that is leading young people in all age groups.
