Dispelling myths of Junior Development…


Myth 1: Strength training stunts growth

Structured progressive strength training does not negatively effect growth and actually helps the skeletal system develop, building strength in bones, joints and connective tissues.

Myth 2: Strength training is dangerous

Supervised training sessions taking by a qualified coach are by no means dangerous. Strength training actually reinforces the connective structures of the body and decreases risk of injuries.

Myth 3: Athletes get all they need from their sport

Unless at an elite level club with a strength and conditioning coach employed; athletes are expected to run, jump, land and change direction hundreds of times a game with little to no coaching how to perform these movements.
