At this age, athletes are beginning to specialize in their sport and have matured both physically and emotionally. With progression from previous years of training, athletes can now handle an increased training load in their sessions. Technique remains paramount, despite the heavier external loads and more dynamic movement patterns. Soft tissue treatment and prehab becomes an important part of the training process to mitigate the injuries and tissue damage acquired during training sessions and competition. Building a general strength base will prepare the athlete for the increased force and contact in their games as well as help improve co-ordination and fluidity lost during large growing phases.
