Abstract

Participation in youth sports is at an all-time high, surpassing pre-pandemic levels. While this represents a growing opportunity for increased activity, socialization, and skill development in America’s young athletes, we must remain cognizant of the associated risks that threaten their long-term physical and psychological well-being.

We sought to provide current concepts on optimal training methods, injury prevention strategies, and stakeholder education programs.
