Abstract

The purpose of the ASCA Resistance training for children and youth: Updated Position Stand is to provide clarity and guidance as possible to assist coaches in designing resistance training programs for children and youth at various stages throughout their development. Hence this document develops several age-related sample programs, proposes age and function specific progressions in training, and describes the actual first hand experiences of highly trained athletes who have performed intense resistance training during their youth. The Position Stand is divided into 7 sections dealing with each aspect of the long-term athlete development.

The Position Stand presents very specific recommendations to serve as examples. However, it is acknowledged that all cases are individual and hence while very specific recommendations are given, individual variation for any specific individual will be required by the strength and conditioning coach dealing with that specific child. The ASCA Position Stand is largely based on the results of published research with the addition of the real world first hand training experiences that have been reported by the ASCA membership and members of the ASCA Advisory Panel.
