A 30-year follow-up of the Dallas Bedrest and Training Study: I. Effect of age on the cardiovascular response to exercise.
The buzzer sounds and you display a bittersweet expression on your face. It’s the end of the season and you are just about ready to “hang ‘em up”. You’ve invested your hard earned dollars into hotels, equipment and meals on the road and finally have the opportunity to put your feet up at night. Your hardworking young athlete finally gets to spend some time with their long lost friends and if you’re lucky, spend “a little” more time on homework.
For many, the off-season means the beginning phases of the next season. Try outs become much more competitive and that opportunity to play on the select team sounds really appealing. Your child is getting older and is starting to look like he or she is getting serious about hockey. They may not have what it takes to get to the NHL but they sure are good at their sport.
So what should your child be doing between the months of March and August in order to maximize their potential for success in the following season and years to come?
