"It's sad that providing healthcare that should be the norm is considered "spoiling" your patients/athletes in the eyes of coaches"

If you coach, or are in any way involved in youth hockey, watch this video.
This proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are wasting our time with full ice hockey for young kids. We should be playing 1/2 ice in squirts!

I’ve made no secret that I hate The Biggest Loser. I will admit to watching part of one episode and then never watching again. It is everything that is wrong about fat loss and our industry. Screaming, mean, uneducated trainers have made millions and become celebrities while injuring people in a made for TV farce. Read this

Another good article on the sporting version of the Race to Nowhere from the NY Times.
Fun fact. Pat Aufiero of Winchester, Ma ( former MBSC clients and husband of current MBSC client Meghan) sent me this article. Quoted in the article is MBSC client and noted youth sports expert Bob Bigelow ( also of Winchester and father of MBSC staff member Steve Bigelow). How’s that for one degree of separation.

Heres another great post about youth sports. It made me happy because I say these words all the time. Yes, I do my share of “car coaching” and my daughter did once tell a friend “it is really important to play well if the game is far away” but, I always say these words.
Want know what they are?

This a really well written piece.
I know I’ve posted about this topic a lot but, we are still losing the battle. Be a parent. Stand up for what is right. Make hard decisions. Don’t follow the crowd and listen to some clown who only sees your wallet.

As many of you know I have a general distrust of medical science. I have moderately high cholesterol ( low 200’s) but, have avoided statins for years ( thank god, I was right on that one). Just curious what others think?

One of the things that I get really excited about at the start of every year is the Sports Rehab Expert Teleseminar.
Joe Heiler always does a fantastic job getting some of the top rehab professionals from around the world and this year is no different. This year he has an awesome line-up (one speaker interviewed per week) of people like:
- Charlie Weingroff
- Donald Chu
- Derek Hansen
- Rob Panariello
- Gary Gray
- and several others…

I was lucky enough to meet Derek Jeter during my two years with the Red Sox and was impressed by his humility. He walked up to me and said ” hi I’m Derek” as if I might not know. If you read this you’ll understand where his values came from.

I am going to hammer this topic to death. Read this report form the USOC about elite athlete development ( thanks to Michelle Amidon of USA Hockey for passing so much of this stuff along).
Read down to the sub heading Implication
“The findings indicate that Olympians were involved in an average of three sports per year until age 14, which belies the notion that early specialization is critical to long-term success.”
Did you read that? Three sports per year until at least 14. That is the key to success. Don’t believe fake experts who have never developed an Olympian.
