BOULDER, Colo., Oct. 9, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- TeamSnap, the world's number one web and mobile team management service, today announced the formation of the TeamSnap Health & Fitness Advisory Board in cooperation with HealthONE's Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children (RMHC).

The board, currently composed of six RMHC board-certified doctors, will publish original articles for both the TeamSnap blog as well as for other media outlets serving young athletes and their parents. Topics will include injury prevention, nutrition and training tips as well as general information for helping busy families balance the many demands on their time.

"We are very pleased to team up with Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children for this project," said Ken McDonald, TeamSnap's vice president of Customer Acquisition. "The parents, managers, coaches and young athletes who rely on TeamSnap can now find original information provided by some of the nation's leading experts in health and fitness for kids and young adults," he added.

The inaugural members of the TeamSnap Health & Fitness Advisory Board are:
* Dr. Laurel Benson, MD, Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon.
* Dr. Sue Kirelik, MD, Pediatric Emergency Medicine/Concussion.
* Dr. Karen McAvoy, PsyD, Clinical Psychologist/Concussion Specialist.
* Dr. K. Brooke Pengel, MD, Pediatrician/Sports Medicine Specialist.
* Dr. John Polousky, MD, Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon.
* Dr. Jaren Riley, MD, Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon.

The first blog post was written by Dr. Pengel and is called "Lightning Safety: Four Things Parents, Children, Athletes and Coaches Need to Know." Dr. Pengel was inspired to develop this piece after this season's opening NFL game between the Denver Broncos and the Baltimore Ravens was delayed for approximately 30 minutes due to lightning.
