Early Sports Specialisation | Infographic

Early sports specialisation is something that is fairly common in younger athletes with the thought process that specialising early will equal a better chance of success in the future. Whilst there is some truth in this, especially as athletes get older, it definitely comes with its downsides. The above infographic shows that the more someone specialises in one sport the greater the chance of injury. In the foundation years of development, we recommend exposure to multiple sports which will ensure a happy, healthy and young athlete that has a big movement toolbox as a result of exposures to different sports in training and competition.
