Guiding children through the issues of youth sport

Best Practice for Youth Sport tackles the increasing professionalisation and specialisation of youth sport which is eroding the ideal mantra: “It’s all about the kids.”

The text explores developmentally appropriate practice and encourages athlete-centered practices that are truly beneficial for young athletes.

It is based on the principle of developmentally appropriate practice (DAP), which can be defined as engaging in decisions, behaviours, and policies that meet the physical, psychological and social needs of children based on their ages and maturity.

It is an ideal reference text for students, practitioners and researchers in youth sport and sport and exercise psychology.
