Youth Fitness and Athletic Development for Ages 10-13

About 10 days ago I posted a video explaining how youth fitness and athletic development for kids 6-9 years old should be approached.  We de-bunked the myth(s) concerning sport specific training for young children and I described the necessity for the proper type of training for children in this age bracket.

I would be remiss if I did not take the time to explain the same for our next age group – the 10-13 year olds.

We call our young athlete classes in this age range Exploration Classes.

We do so because at this age and development stage(s) our young athletes are still discovering movement BUT they are also learning movement.


Because developmentally that is what a child’s brain and CNS (Central Nervous System) are in a position to do.

Watch below to learn more about how to approach youth fitness for this age group.

Thanks for watching!

If you have questions and or comments please leave them below.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Til next time,
