Lloyd RS, Cronin JB, Faigenbaum AD, Haff GG, Howard R, Kraemer WJ, Micheli LJ, Myer GD, Oliver JL. J Strength Cond Res. 2016 Jun;30(6):1491-509. doi: 10.1519/JSC.0000000000001387.

The National Strength and Conditioning Association has released a position statement related to long-term athletic development. The goal of the authors was “to critically synthesize existing literature and current practices within the field and to compose a relevant position statement…. A list of 10 pillars of successful long-term athletic development are presented, which summarize the key recommendations…. With these pillars in place, it is believed that the NSCA can (a) help foster a more unified and holistic approach to long-term athletic development, (b) promote the benefits of a lifetime of healthy physical activity, and (c) prevent and/or minimize injuries from sports participation for all boys and girls.”
