Case in point comes from the February issue of Sports Health regarding pitch count recommendations and youth coaches where the authors state "This study shows that this subset of youth baseball coaches is deficient with regard to knowledge of the USA Baseball Medical and Safety Advisory Committee pitching guidelines. This situation may put youth pitchers at increased risk for upper extremity pain and injuries."

Clearly we still have some educating to do.

Only now is this type of information getting to the young player's parents with groups like the STOP Sports Injuries Campaign.  The young athlete typically is not "trained" by a professional coach whether it's a sport coach or strength and conditioning coach.  The other epidemic is the lack of physical activity at school whether it's P.E. or recess.  But don't get me started on that topic.

Comment by John Weatherly on May 19, 2012 at 7:01pm

Yes, but why with the knowledge and "sports science" would these situations be prevalent such as young players playing year round, not having an offseason, etc?  Periodization has been talked about over and over and over for 30 years or more in the coaching and "sports science" literature in the U.S.  You mean nobody listens or is aware of this information and it is not applied?
