Dr. Robert M. Malina, Director of the Institute for the Study of Youth Sports at Michigan State University, believes strongly that parents must watch what's going on, check out trainers and leagues, visit practices unannounced, and most importantly, pay attention to the coaching their child is getting.
"Good coaches know the states of mind and body of the kids who play for them," says Dr. Malina. A good coach who understands adolescent physiology and psychology can be hard to find, however. Parents should learn how local organizations screen and train coaches. The National Association for Sports and Physical Education publishes coaching standards, but adherence is voluntary. Parents might obtain copies to see how leagues and individuals measure up. Coaching is teaching, Dr. Malina says, that should address a child's ability, size, weaknesses, and maturity.
"Coaches must understand and cope with the physiological, psychological, and social changes of puberty. They must know how to direct [young athletes] because of the normal variations in puberty," says Dr. Malina.
