Children and Sport EXNS 1119  High dropout rate. Approximately 75% of kids have dropped out of organized sport by 14 years  Increase in childhood obesity and related conditions. Now affects approximately 17% of US children & adolescents  Lack of creativity. Children are afraid of making mistakes for fear of being benched, cut and shouted at, so they play safe.  Diminishing US national sport success in a number of sports  Incidence of overuse injuries has rapidly increased. Up to 50% of all injuries seen in pediatric sports medicine are related to overuse. We have a Problem  Too early specialization in late specialization sports  Too much training at too young an age  Too much emphasis on winning over skill development at a young age  Lack of qualified and experienced coaches particularly in the younger age groups  Parental fears of children being ‘left behind’ if they don’t engage in the current youth sport set up  Focus is on college and pro sport, when the reality is 95-99% will not reach this level. What are we going to do about it? We are going to talk about how kids are different We are going to talk about how the sporting environment therefore needs to be different We are going to dispel myths and inappropriate practice “If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over” John Wooden
