// WOULD YOU INVEST WHEN THE MARKET PEAKS? // So why do we continue to limit investment in our developing athletes?
I do understand that the investment at top level gives money for more grassroots, but why not strike a deal that looks at long term - 10-15 years? That's all it takes for a solid foundation to be built.
What is compounding? In essence, snowballing, but going up hill instead of downhill. When you invest a little in an early growth market then your percentage has a higher absolute growth overall.
We talk about investing in our athletes when they got older, and how the current investment at a young age tends to lead athletes to leave when they get old enough. Why? Because we don't need elite athlete development programs with you. We need youth development programs.
Ones where the kids aren't burnt out, they love every minute of the sport, and they can see a platform to build to their dreams.
Can you imagine how strong, fit, fast and responsible our athletes can be if we invested more at a younger age?
The best coaches know to apply care, rather than ignore a struggling teen.
The best coaches know when play is encouraged over foundation movement patterns.
The best coaches know when to apply the right load for the best physical development.
And the best coaches know how to build character and positive personality traits among young athletes.
So why aren't we already investing?
