High school athletes come in all sizes, but their training should be unified.

When the strength coaching profession was in its infancy in the 1970s, it was difficult to find information about periodization. Much of the material appeared only in articles published in expensive journals or a few hard-to-acquire books, many not available in English. All that has changed in today’s computer age, but easier access comes with its own set of problems.
For starters, much of the information available about periodization has been poorly translated. For example, here is an excerpt from a textbook written by one of the foremost experts on periodization, the late sport scientist Yuri Verkhoshansky: “The perfectioning of a basketball player’s technical-tactical arsenal is also associated with the growth of their functional preparedness and the rise in the stability of the specific motor habits towards the developing fatigue.” It’s a pain to decipher phrasing like this, and any coach reading it will quickly lose interest.

There are several advantages for young athletes who elect to play multiple sports, even those who aspire to earn college scholarships.
