COACHING NEWS


'Little League shoulder' on the rise
HealthDay News via Philly.com
With summer in full swing, so, too, are youthful arms, with kids happily throwing pitches as hard and as fast as they can on baseball diamonds all across America. But experts warn that some children who engage in repetitive overhead ball-throwing — especially pitching — can end up paying a price, as insufficient strength paired with poor form turns into the condition commonly known as "Little League shoulder."

How hamstrings should be trained
Liberty Voice
Athletes who had previous hamstrings injury have a 12 to 31 percent likelihood that they could re-injure the muscle group, according to a systematic review published in the North American Journal of Sports Physical Therapy. Most hamstring strains are caused by jumping, sprinting and kicking, because they involve quick deceleration or acceleration movements that could increase the chances of damaging the muscle fiber and other structures of the muscle and surrounding connective tissues.

How do we save baseball from extinction?
The Daily Signal
The baseball diamonds across the country are increasingly empty, with weeds growing in the infield. If you drive by a neighborhood park on a Saturday afternoon, few boys or girls are playing baseball or softball. Most are playing basketball, or even, kicking a soccer ball. These days, skateboarding seems to be more popular with young teens than baseball.

Can practice overcome a lack of talent?
Psychology Today
Recent books have suggested that deliberate practice — structured practice designed to improve performance in music, sports, games, or a profession — accounts for most of the difference between average and "star performers." Very recent research suggests that deliberate practice, while important, doesn’t seem to compensate for talent and natural abilities (such as intelligence).

Massage for neck pain: Is dosage the key?
By Heidi Dawson
Massage therapy has been used in many forms for centuries to treat musculoskeletal pain. In our current society, neck pain is the second-most common complaint treated by most forms of complementary therapists. However, despite masses of anecdotal evidence, research has failed to demonstrate the efficacy of massage therapy when it comes to treating such conditions.

How to stay hydrated all summer long
U.S. News & World Report
As sweat evaporates from your body, it takes some of the heat with it. Unfortunately, our body cannot store vast reserves of water or electrolytes. To keep up this cooling system, you must continue to consume water and electrolytes. If your electrolyte consumption doesn't make up for what you've lost, you can experience muscle cramps, fatigue, a drop in performance, heart palpitations, light-headedness or trouble focusing.
