Coaching of athletes involves the building core strengh and the development of technique. 

 

For young athletes, the building of core stength is critical. Without that core strength the ability to learn and develop new motor skills is limited.  Young bodies must also be ready to accept some conditioning. It is for this reason that Little Athletics recommends that athletes under the age of nine do not engage in conditioning exercises & training. General physical activities during play time at school and at home are enough for their bodies.
