Review

""""This unique book provides important lessons for those people training young athletes. The critical message is that the design and intensity of training regimens for child and adolescent athletes should not mimic those of their adult counterparts. Training programs for young athletes must be consistent with their level of anatomic, physiological, and emotional maturity. Failure to comply with such programs puts the child at risk for injury and/or early dropout from sports participation. This book provides useful, practical guidance for creating a positive athletic experience for young competitors."""Thomas W. Rowland, MDEditor, Pediatric Exercise ScienceAuthor of Developmental Exercise Physiology """Total Training for Young Champions encompasses topics that are essential for coaching younger athletes. With Bompa's explanatory writing style and superb training methods, coaches can give their young athletes the basis they need to excel in any sport."""Lynne RolleyDirector of Programs, USA Tennis Player Development "

Format: Paperback
It's hard to write a review without it sounding like an advertisement...This book dispels many myths of youth training like the need for early sports specific exercises. It covers exercises for all phases of youth development from ages 5 to 20. His advice, backed by world class achievement, can help you resist the pressure to put children through adult style training exercises and at the same time properly train children for future world class competition. I have compared his recommendations against many sources and have become convinced that they are correct. This book is a must have for Directors of Youth Coaching and Physical Development.

This book is full of good "common sense" information. I read the book from the veiwpoint of a parent, most of the drills and training exercises would be of more use for a coach, but the book was still interesting. The author gives a variety of ways to train a child to become a better athlete without burning them out at a young age. The book is very thorough in explaining the exercises, eg., which muscle is being stretched or if your working on strength or stamina, making it helpful for a rookie.

It is a good handbook for high school and modified level coaches. There is not a lot of new information but enough to get novice coaches started.
