The number of young boys and girls participating in athletics is at an all-time high and growing. They are getting exponentially larger with each passing generation.
Coaching has evolved into a whole new area of understanding and instructional skills which allow athletes to improve earlier and at a more rapid pace. Both genders now have the tools, equipment, facilities and willing participants to surpass their predecessors’ abilities and records.
