Multi-Sport: Is Playing Multiple Sports Moving Against the Tide?
One of the eight key factors underlying Long-Term Development in sport and physical activity for organizations is: Appropriate Specialization. This factor recommends that, except in early specialization sports, athletes should not over-specialize until their early teens. Before then, they should participate in a wide range of sports and activities to build a high level of physical literacy and well-rounded sport skills. And yet, it seems the sport system—and those working with pre-teen participants—are creating increased opportunities for early specialization.

Join Sport for Life, alongside researcher Alyssa Cox and practitioner David Mirota, to discuss and explore this reality, and possible ways forward.

Presentation Details:
- Alyssa Cox will present a summary of her recent research findings on “Sample or Specialize? Exploring Youth Sport Coaches’ Perspectives and Practices Regarding Sport Specialization and Sport Sampling”.
- David Mirota will present on his perspective as a parent of two pre-teen boys and as the director of Sport Development programs for Freestyle Canada, and some suggestions to move forward around appropriate specialization.
