Confusing headline? I hope it makes you read this.

Athletes Are Made In the Off-Season

If your child is a hockey player from 6-15 PLEASE don’t sign them up for spring and summer leagues! The only people who need spring and summer leagues are rink operators and league operators. ALL THE EVIDENCE SAYS NO.

Another Vote Against Specializing- This Time From the NFL

Posted in Guest Authors, Media, Uncategorized, Youth Training with tags , on February 9, 2015 by mboyle1959

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.”

I know I’ve posted about this topic a lot but, we are still losing the battle. Be a parent. Stand up for what is right. Make hard decisions. Don’t follow the crowd and listen to some clown who only sees your wallet.

As many of you know I have a general distrust of medical science. I have moderately high cholesterol ( low 200’s) but, have avoided statins for years ( thank god, I was right on that one). Just curious what others think?
