2 Lacrosse Lacrosse Lacrosse is a contact team sport played between two teams using a small rubber ball and a long-handled stick called a crosse or lacrosse stick.

I play lacrosse and I get pummeled all the time. yesterday I body checked a kid so hard that I broke 3 of his ribs gave him a concussion and knocked him unconscious and guess what I'm only 10 years old

There’s been 23 deaths in a time of 28 years for lacrosse.

This sport should be number 1. you get to full-out body slam people and HIT THEM WITH METAL POLES (! ) and its all perfectly legal.

I just had a lacrosse game and I hurt 2 people in less then ten minutes and I didn't mean to but if I was trying they would be screwed and I'm only 12. - Trenton17B

3 Rugby

Rugby is basically football but without pads and with football being #1 it's not true. I've been playing football for 8 years now the most major injuries I've had is a small concussion and a broken pinky I was over both in 2 weeks

My uncle got a kick to the head and he died on the rugby field

Yeh broke someones arm just in a scrum

What in the world is it?

4 Ice Hockey Ice Hockey Ice hockey is a contact team sport played on ice, usually in a rink, in which two teams of skaters use their sticks to shoot a vulcanized rubber puck into their opponent's net to score points.

Your getting slammed against boards constantly and the body checks are going at up to 50 MPH don't make people mad or they'll beat you up. I have a friend who plays hockey and he has crutches all the time.

I think ice hockey because your constantly being thrown around onto boards so yeh...

Hockey is way harder then girly cheerleader it's just a fact

Seems fun never played it before

5 Horseback Riding Horseback Riding Horseback riding (or Equestrian) is one of the most intense sports known to man. Not only because it's physically challenging, but it takes more than athleticism. Horseback riding takes commitment, time, patience, and most importantly building a bond with your horse. If you don't have a good relationship more.

I was put on a horse, and she took off with me and rammed my leg into a fence. I got away easy. I could've gone to the ER with a fractured knee, but I got back on and couldn't walk properly for the next week.

This sport is very risky, as is any sport, but don't let it discourage you from letting your child do it. One of the best things my mother ever did for me was not letting me grow out of my horse phase! I told her I liked horses and she switched jobs so she could pay for my shows and lessons. She found the barn where I work everyday and gain experience training horses from the ground and the barn where I go twice a week to train horses from the saddle. honestly, I have had the greatest experiences of my life at these two barns, and I'm so grateful that my parents let me do it. If your child wants to ride horses, please don't stop them! It may turn out to be the thing they never knew they needed - SassyEquine

Dude. This is dangerous. I know multiple people who have been paralyzed and others who can never get on a horse again. I won't go into all this again, but I feel like this is the most dangerous sport. The injuries suffered our horrific. Landing people in the hospital for months, paralyzing, killing. You're working with a skittish animal ten times your size, yet I've seen kids as young as three riding. I'm not saying that's irresponsible, but kids have to be careful with the horses they choose to ride. Ones that are slower and gentle. But even the oldest, slowest, carefulest horse doesn't garuntee your safety.

I personally think that this should be higher than football. Not to dis football or anything, I know that it's hard and have witnessed the injuries firsthand, but it just isn't as dangerous( in my research-and-fact-based opinion). My trainer's friend broke her neck after being ran into the fence. I have seen people suffer concussions and broken bones after falling yet still getting back on to finish their pattern at a show. - SassyEquine

6 Motocross

It's one of the most physical sports and demanding. I broke my arm and leg from it and I see 6 years old flying by people going as fast as there bike can go

I'm glad this is a sport

7 Field Hockey

As a goalkeeper, I can say that not a single field hockey player would step into the goals without a full suit of armour. And guess what. Players have no armour except for shin-pads and a mouth guard. I have seen players splinter elbows, dislocated bones, toes pointed the wrong way. As a full back, I almost had my brains spattered across the turf by a stray ball. In goalkeeper armour, I have almost had bones broken through three centimetres (an inch) of solid/super dense foam plating. Regular players have no armor for the most vulnerable parts of their bodies to protect them ftom a 3-5 kilo, solid ball, travelling at just below tennis serve speeds.

This is a very dangerous sport it like lacrosse but has more pads making it less dangerous.

8 Gymnastics Gymnastics Gymnastics is a sport involving the performance of exercises requiring strength, flexibility, balance and control.

Say that a girl does a back handspring and splits the beam she's going to be hurt so bad

It's probably not the most dangerous, but it's pretty dangerous. I mean gymnast flip on a four inch wide beam, four feet above the ground...

I was made to quit

I loved it though

It for baby's

9 Cheerleading

20 ft, I am a Flyer and fall from 40-60 ft, dangerous - Swiftdawn

I am a cheerleader and the is top 3 dangerous sport
For example my team mate broke her ankle and elbow

People have died from chearleading. Imagine falling from up to almost 20 ft in the air

10 Water Polo

I think that this should be higher on the list. Like, number 2. Trying to score points and communicate with your team while also trying not to drown? Yeah, definitely dangerous. I don't even play water polo, but quite honestly I'm too scared to try it! - SassyEquine

I'm 14 and have been playing for quite some time. Almost everyday I hop out of the pool with a bloody nose, scratches all over, and have constant tendonitis.

The Contenders

11 Boxing Boxing Boxing is a martial art and combat sport in which two people wearing protective gloves throw punches at each other for a predetermined set of time in a boxing ring..

1 day my brother was like u want to box? I saw what he had(paper boxing gloves) and I totally freaked out

I'm only 7 and I can only do boxing with a Safety mask

12 Soccer Soccer Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a sport played between two teams of eleven players with a spherical ball. The goal is to score the ball on the other team's goal.

I play soccer and personally I think it is pretty dangerous, I’ve twisted my ankle many times, I’ve been kicked in the face, knee and shin. Soccer is a painful sport to play.

It is dangerous because usually most of the fouls are kick in the face and lots of bleeding. Even though it is fun to play be careful.

I've been playing for a while and I've broke a ankle and much more.

Soccer is 90 minutes of pretending you are hurt

17 Dodgeball

Awesome sport

I had a young supply teacher for P.E. instead of the fat middle aged one, the young one did dodgeball, nightmare.

18 Downhill Skiing

22 Softball

In softball you can seriously hurt yourself if you don't know what you're doing and even if you're experienced, accidents happen that can cause injuries. I've been playing softball for 10 years, 7 years as a catcher, and I have back problems as well as shoulder problems just from overuse. At tournaments, you can easily spend 10-12 hours at the field in a day. I got hit by a pitch once and it broke my hand leaving me out for 2 months at least. Softball is not easy and should not be looked down upon.

23 Roller Derby
24 Ice Skating

J.M. Barrie based Peter Pan on his older brother David, who died on a ice skating accident the day before his 14th birthday. J.M. Barrie was 6 year old at the time. His mother and brother thought of him as forever as a boy. The boy who wouldn't grow up.

25 Volleyball Volleyball Volleyball is a team sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team's court under organized rules.

I think volleyball is super hard and very dangerous a ball is coming at you and you have no way of knowing where its gonna hit you have no idea how many times I have broken a wrist (3)

26 Football Football Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a sport played between two teams of eleven players with a spherical ball. The goal is to score the ball on the other team's goal.
