Conditioning For Your Sport

Many injuries sustained by young athletes playing organized sports can be avoided if the athlete is properly conditioned. As competitive levels increase in younger age groups it is important that parents and coaches are knowledgeable about proper conditioning programs and know when to rest athletes to prevent unnecessary and avoidable injuries. Coaches, athletes, and parents must remember that being physically fit for one sport or position does not necessarily mean an athlete is adequately prepared for another.
