Injuries to Young Athletes on the Rise

There are several reasons why we opened Athletic Revolution.

None more important than helping reduce injuries in young athletes.

Is our goal to reduce injury by helping our athletes become…

Stronger?

More mobile and flexible?

Faster?

More proficient when moving?

More aware of skill development and how it relates to better athleticism?

Yes, yes, yes , yes and yes.

What is never mentioned in our literature but perhaps should be is how we strive to educate parents and their young athletes beyond the x’s and o’s of training.  How important rest is to the human body.  The role stress plays in athletic development.  Human development and how it relates to performane training for young athletes.

Read this article that was recently published in the Boston Globe for even greater insight.
