The ages of 8 to 12 are some of the most important development years for young athletes! Youth Performance Academy is a organization designed to help your young athlete develop speed, power and strength.
Here are a few important things that happen with this age group:
Increase in body strength and hand dexterity through physical activities
Improved coordination and reaction time
Increase in large-muscle coordination, leading to success in organized sports and games
Increase in small-muscle coordination, allowing them to learn complex skills
Refinement of finger control
Increased stamina (They can run and swim farther.)
Things parents can do!
Don't allow a TV in your child's bedroom, and limit time for TV, computers and video games to one to two hours per day. That will promote more time for active play.
