Product Description

Product Description

Readable, practical, a much-needed resource—from a pediatric sports medicine specialist—the only book that focuses on all aspects of sports, exercise, nutrition, and physical activity for kids of all ages and abilities, from infancy through adolescence.

One of the few pediatricians specializing in sports medicine, Dr. Small reminds us that children are not miniature adults; they are physiologically and psychologically different. Parents and coaches need to know what sports are suitable for which age, how to prevent and treat injuries, how to plan sports programs for children with chronic conditions such as asthma or diabetes, and the importance of good nutrition and exercise.

Written, organized, and designed for easy reading and reference with Q&As, charts, instructional drawings, and a detailed index, Dr. Small's book addresses kids' needs from infancy through teenage, plus devotes one section to Sports for Every Kid: covering The Young Female Athlete, The Elite Athlete, The Unnatural Athlete, The Overweight Child, The Hyperactive Child, and the Child with a Chronic Disease.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book for me as a youth soccer coach 29 Mar 2014
By Sajjio
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I began coaching 13 years ago and it took me years, through trial and error, to become the coach I am today. I wish I had this book early on in my coaching career as it gives a fantastic background and knowledge base on the most important thing about coaching...get to know your kids!

A lot is covered in this book for me to go through and a lot of reviewers have covered for most part so what I will say is that if you are looking to become the best coach you can be and undsrstand the needs of your children better then don't hesitate to purchase this little treasure trove.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent reference 26 Oct 2002
By Align PT - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Dr. Small has covered all bases in this extremely informative, well layed-out book.
His outlines, questions and answers, and diagrams provide a clear cut guide for parents. As a physical therapist that treats adults and children, I am often faced with the same questions Dr. Small has answered in his book. Besides being a great guide for parents, it is an excellent reference for rehab professionals, coaches and any other professionals who work with kids' sports.

By Fred Schlissel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be extremely useful and informative as a guide to my children's sports activity. My children will be safer, and better athletes.
In addition, although this book was written by by a highly trained physician, I found it to be very user friendly and easy to comprehend. The writing style was very accessible, and easier to apply as a result.
I highly recommend this book to every person involved in children's sports.
