Young people and sports

A leading group of American doctors is warning against forcing young people to


become skilled in a single sport. It says young people who play just one sport
face additional physical or other demands from intense training and competition.
It says children involved in sports should be urged to take part in different
activities and develop many skills.

The doctors note that more and more children are skilled in one sport at an
early age. There are many media reports of young competitors in sports such
as gymnastics, figure skating and tennis.

Some of the most famous athletes first became active in a sport when they
were five years old. A few started even earlier. The committee noted that the
successes of young athletes can be a powerful influence for others to follow. It
says children wishing to compete at a high level require training that could be
considered extreme even for adults. It says the necessary desire and intensity
of training raise many concerns about the safety of high-level athletic activity for
any young person.

The American Academy of Pediatrics says the health effects of intense training
in young athletes need to be fully investigated. Risks to young athletes include
injuries, delayed menstruation, eating disorders and emotional stress.

The committee of doctors offered some suggestions. It urged children to


become involved in sports at levels that meet their abilities and interests. It said
doctors should work with parents to make sure that someone knowledgeable is
training the child athlete. That person should know correct methods of training,
equipment and the physical and emotional health of young competitors.

The group said doctors should supervise the condition of child athletes involved
in intense training. It said doctors and trainers should work to prevent injuries
that result from too much physical activity. Doctors should make sure the
children eat a healthy, balanced diet. And doctors should watch for signs of too
much training, including weight loss and sleep problems.
