Youth Sports Rant

By Todd M. Cambio | June 9, 2015

For those know that me, you know I support kids playing sports more than anybody. I am just like all the other parents who have their kids in multiple sports at the same time. For instance, right now we are finishing spring AAU basketball and spring soccer. Two kids going in two different directions for practices and games. So yes, I feel the “crazy spring” schedule all the moms talk about! Here was just this past weekend’s game schedule:

I know some of you have it even worse! Anyways, here is my rant. It is not about the schedule actually. If I allow my kids to play 2 sports during the same season, I let the coaches know there will be games we will miss. I should point out that I do not sign them up for a sport if a coach is not ok with this senario. I also have no problem telling my kids they are not playing becasue I think there is just too much on their plate. For the record, I would’t let My daughter play basketball on Sunday, then play soccer, then go to tryouts.

That being said, lets get my RANT ON!!! 😉

This rant was actually spurred on by two people. One was a post by a friend that caught my attention on Facebook and the other was a direct story from one of my fellow parents at a school event. The quick and simple version is that in both the afore mentioned circumstances, the sport coach decided the kids were “slow” at practice one day (we are taking 6-8 weeks into the season here) so therefore the kids were all of a sudden “out of shape”.

This senario happens all the time and it drives me crazy. If you are 6-8 weeks into a season, the kids are not out of shape. Most likely they are starting to show signs of burn out! And since many of the kids are in multiple sports, they are certainly in shape and most likely hinging on what I will call “over-playing”. It can lead to over-training and over-use injuries if not taken into consideration.

I have experienced this phenomenon first hand recently. The kids have been very flat at the last 2 SAQ sessions with me. One day was definately due to the heat. We went from 60 degrees to 90! What I also didnt really know about was that my daughter and all her classmates are doing a get fit in May thing at school where they have class contests to see which class can run the most laps. The kids basically accumulate laps at recess and gym.

To make a long story a little shorter, my daughter’s knee was hurting last week. Come to find out, she was doing on average 15-20 laps a day which is around 4 miles a day. Now add on 3 practices a week, one day of Strength and conditioning with yours truely and all these games on the weekend and she is quite simply over-training for an 11 year old!

I pulled her from the am games Sunday trying to lesson the fatigue I know is setting in. So of course, in the soccer game Sunday, she started limping fairly noticably and her play was effected. So after the game I officially put her on a week of rest!

My RANT is this: IF YOU ARE A COACH AND YOU ARE IN-SEASON, I GUARANTEE THE KIDS ARE IN SHAPE!

STOP RUNNING THEM INTO THE GROUND, YOU ARE ONLY COMPOUNDING THE UNDERLYING ISSUE AND YOU COULD BE SETTING THEM UP FOR FAILURE! EITHER BURNING THEM OUT BEFORE THE GAMES OR EVEN WORSE, SETTING THEM UP FOR AN INJURY!

MY SOLUTION:

Find out what is going on with them in their lives. Know what other sports they are playing and how many other practices and games they are doing. Know if there is anything else going on like the school’s running thing? Adjust your practices accordingly. Maybe they need a litte less running and more low intensity stuff that is more like active recovery. In basketball, we play shooting games like knock-out or horse. In SAQ we play reaction ball. Find what excites them but doesn’t crush them physically. You do not need to end every practice with conditioning. Parents, we may have to pull them here and there as well if they are playing multiple sports at once.

BTW I love the school’s running contest, I just wish I dug a little deeper with my kids about how much they were running so I could better moniter the amount of miles they piled up and adjust schedule accordingly!

– Coach Cambio

PS – Next RANT may be on “Specializing in One Sport” if you are anyone younger than a senior in high school!

PPS – Over-playing vs under-training may be a RANT as well! 😉 Just saying!

Youth Speed and Agility Session II May

By Todd M. Cambio | April 16, 2015

I am very excited to announce SESSION II –  Youth Speed and Agility Program for U11 Girls!!!

Photo Finish Relay Race

In case you are unfamiliar with my background, I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with years of coaching and athletic experience.  Before moving here to Exeter, I sold my very successful Sports Performance Training facility.  I don’t coach the kids in soccer or their specific sport (that is the role of their sport coaches), I focus on making them better athletes so they can excel in their sport.  I have coached athletes of all levels from a middle school girl’s basketball team, high school teams, numerous college players, several professional athletes and even an Olympian.

2015-03-27 17.53.31

My focus in this age group is teaching proper movement.  Things like running mechanics, speed, agility, footwork, general strength, cardiovascular endurance, and injury prevention.

You may or may not be aware, but ACL injuries are incredibly common in preteen and teenage girls.  While nothing can absolutely prevent these injuries, girls can train to strengthen their movement in multiple planes of motion to lessen the likelihood of injury.  This is where my background separates me from the rest of pack.  Obviously with my daughter now in this age group, I am even more passionate in seeing her and the girls (boys are welcome too!) excel while remaining injury free.  We will play games, have a ton of fun, and get our kids ready to kill the spring season!

Group Selfie Time ;)

Here is a general training approach I follow to build up my athletes:

Athletic-Development-Pyramid

Here is a more detailed Soccer Performance model that is appropriate for our kids age group highlighted in red:

Athletic_u12-dev-model

I would be happy to give you any more information and discuss my training philosophies.  And I encourage you to pop in on a session to check out our girls in action.  But come prepared- these athletes in training are notorious for calling parents and coaches out to join them!

SIGN UP HERE:

Days per week



WHEN: Mondays and Wednesdays right after school.  3:15 – 4:15 pm

The kids will be tested in basic strength an conditioning appropriate for youth athletes to keep it fun yet challenging.  Things like broad jump, shuttle run test, pro agility and more!

My Training Philosophy

By Todd M. Cambio | February 23, 2015

Goblet Squats
I believe in training the whole body fingertips to toes. I believe in training movement above all else, then adding strength and conditioning. I believe in training you as an athlete, because my athletes have well-rounded physical preparedness demanded each day in everyday life.

I think you should bend, crawl, carry, climb, hang, jump, lift, lunge, pull, push, run, breathe, sprint, squat, balance, stretch and twist… exactly what your body has been designed for over millions of years.

I believe in periodization with goals and not randomized workouts of the day. Programming is essential to truly reach your goals.

I always start with body weight until the movements are solid, then I add load. I generally use kettlebells, barbells, sleds, med balls and other body weight tools like Lebert Equalizers, TRX’s and rings.

I am a huge proponent of Spartan SGX combined with the StrongFirst principals of strength.

I have trained athletes at all levels including an Olympian, professionals, college, high school, middle school and your average moms and dads!

If you have any more questions, just ask! I will answer them!

Until next time!

– Coach Cambio
