How Young Should A Child Start To Specialize In A Sport?

It is a fact that the age at which a young person that peak in sport is increasingly weak. This means heavily dependent not, in particular, through sport, given that some sports such as swimming and tennis, the young participants course is still very young.

However, it said that in an analysis of tennis players in recent years have shown that the average age of boys and girls to be higher, as expected. Boys were in the region, 24 and 22 girls.

If we are men, especially tennis, we have a number of good players emerging in the 20 to 24 years - but the number one women and fashion for men is higher than average.

What is specialized in all sports? For a person elite in every sport 10000 hours of training and practice, which is 3 hours per day for 10 years, that is to say if we are looking for one person for 24 success They have the training and practice, as they were 14 or younger.

Make sure you want to run the sport until junior competition are regularly from the time they reach 10 years, and what it implies before the start of the representation of the sport in 6 to 7 years. They say that in 10, if a child is in sport, they should play at least 3 times a week!

Appearance important to be taken into account:

1. A good basis for sports, in order to cross-training, like basketball for a tennis player.

2. Forgot school should be put in jeopardy.

3. A body of the child develops gradually during their pre-teens and early youth, they should not do weight training, a little OK If it is properly monitored.

4. Correct, training balanced taking into account both sides of the body.

BUT - the most important point in this context is what the child wants to do and not what the parents or the child heard coaches to implement. Fair enough, there must be a small area of the challenge of buses and a good coach, is how to do so in one of the best players in interest rates.

At the end of the day, we find strange children of a certain age are committed and focused on the sport of their choice. But it is a rarity and, unfortunately, it is not necessarily the beginning of the sport of their choice.

It is interesting to note that Tim Henman was not the best of the team, when he was young, and then exceed them, but all others of his group.

In the United Kingdom, there is a high degree of competition among all sports to achieve the best juniors, and it is a general rule, that someone who is good in sport is also a good, a number other sports. The pulpit junior finally choose the path that suits them. What we do, you will find in this scenario is that a player who was suddenly on stage, and in a world of know-beater Seb Coe, Ian Black, etc.

So at the end of the day - that is the child, if they want to launch specialty, the coach can only advise them.
