Children who exercise regularly are more likely to develop lifelong habits that foster good heart and lung health, strong muscles and bones, sound body composition and psychological well-being.

At CHKD, we are committed to providing the safest training available for children. We follow established guidelines developed by the American College of Sports Medicine for the training of children, and all of our training guidelines have been approved by our physicians.

For young athletes, a well-rounded strength and conditioning program can improve sports performance and reduce the risk of injuries. This program should include appropriate strength training; flexibility, balance and coordination exercises; and speed agility training. At CHKD, we know that developing strength and force production is a good way to improve a student-athlete’s on-field performance.

For children who are at risk of being overweight, repetitive aerobic exercise can quickly become boring. Adding in appropriate strength training and other types of exercise provides children the variety they need while creating a fun and challenging program. This helps increase a child’s activity level and improves results.

Dr. Joel Brenner, medical director of CHKD's Sports Medicine Program, talks with the AAP about how young athletes can avoid sports injuries.
