I enjoyed this course. I liked how it gave a framework on how to program a workout for a youth athlete based on an individual sport. I found the speaker enjoyable and engaging.

Had some great information but I felt like the time could have been better spent focusing on the explanation of HOW to design training plans for young athletes rather than showing a lot of movement examples. I'm not really sure what I got out of watching a high school senior doing these movements anyway as she is barely a "youth athlete" considering she can train like an adult.
