Key Takeaways: Wellness Tips for Your Young Athlete

The Mount Sinai Health System is a proud sponsor of the Harlem Little League 2021 spring season. As your dedicated resource for health-related content, we would like to present some key takeaways from a recent webinar on The Importance of Healthy Habits: Wellness Tips for Your Young Athlete with Abigail Allen, MD, Chief of Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery and the Director of the Pediatric Orthopedic Clinic.  

If there is one thing to remember as a coach or parent of a young athlete, it is this: children are not just small adults. Engaging children in sports at an early age can be valuable in preparing them for a lifetime of activity and healthy habits, but it’s important to strike a healthy balance between encouraging movement and overtraining.
