In brief: ?Cause ?sport
Participation in any sport requires an understanding of a kids physical limitations and the demands of the sport.
Mild liver & spleen enlargement after a simple viral illness might not require much restriction while a kid with mono & speen enlargment is at risk of rupture after any abdominal trauma.The childs physician should review the kids health & risks of the proposed sport before participatn.
