Research demonstrates young athletes require greater variety in training to enhance their overall athletic development and longevity in sport. Each sport stresses specific muscles, joints, and the cardiovascular system in different ways. By incorporating athletic conditioning alongside and alternatively with technical development, we can decrease chances of injury, enhance overall health, and overall increase the athleticism of athletes.
