In brief: Sport Specific Specs

Check with your optometrist.
They make sports specific lenses for a variety of different sports with shatter resistant lenses and some with bands to fit around the head to prevent them from coming off. If your child has regular over the ear glasses, and they are already an approved lens, check your local sporting goods store for a strap that will hold them. Look into soft contacts too.
