Taking time to consider safety before you step on the court can save you from many injuries.
First and foremost, take time to stretch and warm up slowly every time you step on the court - think about each muscle group and stretch them all thoroughly. Remember - the professionals all do this every time and so should you.
Another way to avoid injury is to protect yourself - a mouth guard is an excellent idea, and many teams encourage or require players to wear ankle braces to avoid turned or sprained ankles.
The more time you take to protect yourself now, the less time you'll spend sitting the bench with an injury.
