Early and Late Maturers

One of the benefits of the USSA Training Systems is that they help keep perspective and plan appropriate training for athletes that mature earlier or later than their same age peers. We know that both early and late maturers can ultimately reach the top. However, different maturation rates physically, cognitively and socially can often lead to different paths to ultimate success, each with different bumps along the way. But understanding these challenges presents opportunities for coaches and athletes to take advantage.
