Abstract

The relationship between exercise and children and adolescent athletes plays a very important role in the science of exercise prescription. The difficult questions - ''How soon?'' ''How much?'' and ''What's too much?'' - are asked of physicians daily. The basics for the answers to these questions is just now beginning to be delineated. Because the child or adolescent is not simply a ''little adult,'' consideration of his or her special needs is not simply outlined. Hopefully, this article begins to untangle the web of information and misinformation surrounding the young athlete.
