Minnesota could be 1st in nation to require swimming lessons
Bring Me The News
If approved, a bill in the Minnesota Legislature would become the first law in the nation to require swimming lessons for children in public schools. The legislation, sponsored by two Minneapolis DFL lawmakers, state Rep. Karen Clark and state Sen. Jeff Hayden, would require all public schools to teach swimming or — if the school doesn't have a pool — basic water safety.

New program aims to help Idaho high school athletes
KMVT-TV
A new program handed down from the Idaho State Board of Education will give high school athletes the chance to increase their credit count and play sports at the same time. In the Twin Falls School District, all students are required to complete two physical education courses in their four years in high school. This new program will allow student athletes to receive a course credit for participating in extracurricular activates, freeing them up to take more electives and possibly graduate early.

Should high school athletes be able to choose where they attend school?
WKXW-FM
High school athletic programs assembling "Dream Teams" has become a problem in New Jersey. Assemblymen John Buirzichelli plans to introduce a bill that will make it mandatory for high school athletes to play for their district's school, if that school offers their sport. They will not be allowed to take advantage of the choice program to play at a school that potentially has a better team.

Parents (and their lawyers) are killing the high school athletic honor code
Forbes
If you've ever played school sports, or if your child does so now, you were informed at some point that it was a privilege to be an athlete, and as such you (or your child) could get suspended or tossed off the team for stuff that didn't have anything to do with grades or on-field conduct — conduct such as drinking or using drugs, or merely being present where alcohol or drugs were being consumed. The assumption behind these rules is that your parents — or you as a parent — would be OK with this punishment. That assumption, certainly these days, is highly incorrect.

FITNESS AND CONDITIONING


Make the most of your rest days
STACK
Recovery, corrective exercise and conditioning are all very important in improving your overall athletic performance. There's just one big problem: They are boring. They don't satisfy the "let's get after it" attitude of many athletes and avid gym goers. If our hearts are not pounding out of our chests, or our faces are not in the trash getting reacquainted with breakfast, we feel our training session was not "hard enough" or worth the time.

Tommy John surgery now routine in Major League Baseball, but is youth baseball partially to blame?
New York Daily News
Call it the year of the elbow ligament. Many in baseball are asking two separate — and newly urgent — questions about Tommy John surgery: Why is it happening so often, and is the procedure riskier than we thought? Teams are searching for ways to protect their investments, but the hard truth is that many pitchers are on the road to surgery well before they are drafted.

Increase metabolic stress for size and performance
STACK
Want a quick surge in performance enhancement? Creating metabolic stress might be your answer. This is a way to maximize your energy turnover during a training session, to increase anabolic hormone production and muscle fiber recruitment. To create metabolic stress, you need to do exercises for moderate to high repetitions. But that doesn't mean you should forgo the heavy stuff. Drop, compound and cluster sets can build your metabolites.
