Training Youth Athletes (Pre - Puberty)

Can anyone point me in the right direction regarding any current research on resistance training for athletes who have not yet gone through puberty (middle school age)??  I have heard conflicting views and would like to be able to research the pros and cons myself.  Thanks in advance!!!

Its great to hear from you! Looking forward to meeting you once I get to Texas this summer! I'm excited and ready to get the ball moving - waiting on someone to contact me with additional information I need before I make the trip.

Hope all is well and take care.

I'd like to go to the Level 2 Throws and Sprints Courses.  How did the Level 2 Youth Specialization course differ from the Level 1 course?  How long was the course?
