Youth Athletic DEvelopment

This term refers to training methods that will improve various aspects of youth fitness and athletic performance, such as speed or coordination, throughout the maturation of a child. The training methods will focus on improving these aspects of athletic performance at different ages, adapting the training programmes to a child's physical maturity.

Approaching youth athletic development with this strategy allows all aspects of athletic performance to be developed, through a child's maturation, while increasing the focus on key aspects when necessary, to assist and magnify the natural improvements that would occur at these stages.
