Early identification and modification of training programs can ensure early return to sport and minimize time lost from sport. By load management and a tailored strength and conditioning program we are able to prevent injuries before they happen in the first place. In regards to injury prevention and strength and conditioning there is no minimum age.
The programs are tailored to the age and physical level of the child, however the child must be of an age and maturity to follow directions and understand the reasons for such exercises. This generally is around the age of 8 however children do develope at different rates both physically, mentally and emotionally which is not necessarily linked to their chronological age.
