Make Sure Your Little Leaguer® Is Playing PED-Free: Stand Against Substance Abuse
Over 1.5 million youth athletes admit to using anabolic steroids, with some starting as young as 11 years old. The Taylor Hooton Foundation has built resources for Little League® coaches and parents to help educate them on the dangers of anabolic steroid use. Utilizing this free online resource, parents are able to not only learn the dangers of APED’s, but to educate themselves as to substances that are classified as “performance enhancing” and could be dangerous to their Little Leaguer.

More frequently pre-teens and teenagers are turning to APED’s to not only to improve their athletic prowess, but often times to affect body image and improve their looks off the field. These dangerous substances can even be found in up to 25 percent of dietary supplements, and the use of performance enhancing drugs is growing significantly amongst females, especially teenage girls.

The Taylor Hooton Foundation’s free online training seminar opens eyes about the use of these steroids, while sharing how to recognize signs of dangerous substance abuse in your home and on your team. Take the time to learn about the facts, and sit down with your ball player to make sure you are on the same page about APED’s and their dangers through the help of this FREE online resource. Learn More about APED Dangers.
