Participation in youth sports is increasing and there’s an increase in opportunities for kids to play traditional and non-traditional sports. Personal training and group classes for kids are hot. When training young athletes, they need to develop the key movement patterns before progressing to high levels of training. Movements such as acceleration/deceleration, jumping/landing, anti-rotation/core bracing, upper body push/pull, lower body bilateral movements, push-ups, squats, front plank, and back bridge are key to athletic development. Delegates will practice the movements and the objective evidence will bring it together for a fun and educational work-shop.
