There is so much evidence against specialization that I can’t figure out why anyone specializes. This quote from ESPN.com article might be the best quote ever:
“If these kids are hearing they need to specialize in one sport, it’s mostly because of business and the ego around these coaches,” said Andrew Bark, founder of Student Sports, which runs the annual Elite 11 Quarterback Competition. “You have a lot of untrained or minimally trained adults basically either building their business of club sports, or you have leagues and teams and coaches who only care about their own wins and losses. But the truth is exactly what your [ESPN] numbers say. Playing other sports makes a lot of sense.”
