Adapting Training Modalities for Specialized Youth Athletes to Promote Tendon Health
When it comes to sports performance and youth development, not much is understood in terms of tendon strength and health. Tendons are a complex structure and are responsible for transmitting force throughout our body. My lecture dives into the variation of stiffness within a tendon, how to make it stiffer or less stiff, why that happens, and what the changes lead to. We discuss research around isometrics, neurology, foot and ankle work, as well as psychology and apply that research into warmup drills. The goal of the presentation aims to make a complex topic simple to understand and implement. Developing an understanding of our tendons, roles and responsibilities allows coaches to program more effectively.

Learning Objectives
1. Understand the variation in connective tissue in our tendons from the bone end to the muscle end
2. Understand implementing eccentric and isometric protocols for youth athletes that play year round
3. Understand how to prepare athletes and people for the collisions they will have in their sport, job, and life.
