The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) has released a position statement about long-term athletic development for youth. The document discusses “10 pillars of successful long-term athletic development, which summarize the key recommendations detailed within the consensus statement. With these pillars in place, it is believed that the NSCA can (i) help foster a more unified and holistic approach to youth physical development, (ii) promote the benefits of a lifetime of healthy physical activity, and (iii) prevent and/or minimize injuries from sports participation for all boys and girls.”
