Another Must Read For Parents!

Please read this regardless of what sport your child plays.

Two big takeaways:

1- Kids of rich parents get hurt MORE! ( socio-ecomonic status was a predictor of injury risk but, probably not like you think)
2- Elite athletes specialized later than their sub-elite counterparts! So many great pros were multi-sport athletes. We had two Red Sox pitchers last year who did not pitch until they signed major league contracts. One was a Junior College Quarterback and first baseman ( now an elite pitcher), one played college basketball in addition to baseball.

Sports Should be Childs Play

  1. Awesome! Love your work, and everything that you stand for.

    We are usually similar off-season to off-season. We make changes as we improve the program year to year.

  3. Last offseason I meant

  4. When dealing with a returning athlete for the offseason, would you take him/her through the same routine as offseason? Or come up with something new?
