THE NEED OF BIOMECHANICS RESEARCH IN YOUTH SPORTS

  • Eugene W. Brown

Abstract

In the United States, organized youth sports programs did not begin until after 1900. These initial programs were run by schools. Highly organized sports programs for youths, outside the jurisdiction of the school, were not evident in this country until the 1920's. These early programs were for boys (Barryman,1978). Since then, there has been a steady a·nd rapid rise in the number of boys participating in organized youth sports. More recently, this growth has been paralleled by similar development in youth sports programs for girls.
