LeBron James has one. So do Diana Taurasi, Mike Trout, Tom Brady, and college athletes. What about your young athlete? What is the mystery thing? An off season.
And it is a mystery. It’s a mystery why pros have one and youth athletes don’t. It’s a mystery why coaches and parents refuse to acknowledge the reams of data proving youth sports are out of control. And, it’s an ever bigger mystery why community based coaches, and parents, fail to heed the cries of these athletes whose bodies and minds are screaming out that enough is enough by record numbers of injury rates and emotional burnout.
