Nature v Nurture in youth sports - blog post from Phil Loomis - IYCA

Hi all,

I wanted to share with you this really well written article from Phil Loomis that was posted on the International Youth Conditioning Association website which looks to outline the how young players and athletes develop and to unpick some of the myths and misinformation surrounding the subject. In my opinion the article is really well measured and balanced and gives a well structured viewpoint on the challenges faced by parents and coaches in a landscape that is very outcome driven.

The article chimes with many of the sentiments I have previously expressed on the nurture vs nature debate on this blog previously and so i thought that it should have a place here so that I could share it with anybody that is interested in the subject.
