Our Top Articles On Young Athlete Health.
2021 has brought with it more uncertainty, ups and downs than we might have wanted. One certainty is prioritizing how we care for ourselves & our young athletes.
We have been forced to look at mental health through a different lens in the last 22 months. That is a good thing in many respects.
As stakeholders in youth sport, getting more insight on this area of development has never been more critical:
We mean well as parents and coaches, but we often do more harm than good.
Physical health and development. Working through the reasons, truths, myths and actionable tasks are also high on the priority list.
Nutrition and the young athlete. Overlooked, lack of planning and poorly executed.
Technology has changed the way things are done forever. Some for the good and some for the bad.
Physical literacy is not what it used to be. The role of coaches and parents is significant in ensuring we change the trend of poor health in our young athletes.
As a bonus, in May, we created a Health Edition covering some of the data around trends in athlete health, as well as topics from an athlete’s and coaches’ perspective.
