Child Athlete Abuse Syndrome and Cruelty to Children, medical-legal conditions, in SRE are matters of particular importance to Doctors and Health Care Personnel and should be priority and urgency matters of U.S. Federal and State Governments.
CAAS summons all Doctors and Health Care Personnel into action for the Awareness and Prevention of these Child Athlete Preventable, Not-Accidental morbidities and mortalities.
Likewise all Parents, Coaches, the entire Athletic Community, Athletic Program Administrators and government officials should be summoned. Most don’t heed the summons.
Coaches, Parents and Doctors have been called-out as the primary culprits for these abnormal behaviors by conscientious, concerned Doctors and advocates for Prevention.

Everyone, including Doctors, Parents, Health Care Personnel, Coaches, and the entire Athletic Community will report and Pre-Pubescent and Adolescent Children will not delay and self report Child Athlete Abuse Syndrome, once they understand Child and Youth Athlete Rights, which will be made “Crystal Clear”, under the following amendment to CAPTA 2010 (Child Abuse Prevention and Reauthorization Act) Public Law 111-320, and when it becomes Public Policy following complete proper promulgation, announcement and dissemination.
