Building Athletic Performance in Youth—for Life
How often do we hear that our sports heroes first picked up the baseball bat or golf club at the tender age of three? The trend of sports specificity among children has increased as youth sports have gotten more competitive. Unfortunately, this leads to a lack in overall athletic development in our youth athletes.
Youth athletes can be better served with an emphasis on overall long-term athletic development (LTAD). In this video training, Michael Piercy, MS, CSCS, an ACE Certified Personal Trainer and owner of The LAB Performance & Sports Science, discusses how to build effective training programs that incorporate components important for LTAD in youth athletes. You will learn fun, innovative ways to build skill development, functional speed and agility into sessions for your youth athletes so you can enhance their overall athleticism.
You will learn:
- A systematic approach based on LTAD
- A programming format that enhances overall athleticism in youth populations
- The components needed within every youth fitness program to position young athletes for future success
