Personal Life: Brian Gearity and his wife, Cayla, have three kids, Lorelei (9), Liam (8) and Lincoln (5).

Tips for Parents: Dr. Gearity advocates exploring the notions of “Play,” or “Deliberate Play” and suggests being open to trying new activities with and for your kids; working on communication and problem solving skills; developing values and emotional intelligence; and teaching the basics (e.g., push-ups, sit-ups, basic strength training; sprint work, and stretching).

National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Youth Training and Long-Term Athletic Development (LTAD) Position Statement and Resources
https://www.nsca.com/youth_training_and_long-term_athletic_development/

From the NSCA website (See link above): Long-term athletic development (LTAD) is not merely a blueprint for the aspiring elite athlete; it’s an approach to physical activity and development for children and adolescents of all ages and athletic abilities. The backbone of LTAD is to ensure a safe progression of proper movement, physical literacy, adequate motor skills, and foundational muscular strength as a child grows and physically matures. LTAD addresses youth strength and conditioning, early sport specialization, overtraining, and injury prevention.

The Aspen Institute, Project Play (From reference to Tom Farrey’s “Sport for All” in podcast)
https://www.aspenprojectplay.org

From the Aspen Project Play Website: In January 2015, we released “Sport for All, Play for Life: A Playbook to Get Every Kid in the Game,” a 48-page report that offers a new model for youth sports in America, with eight strategies for the eight sectors that touch the lives of children. Supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and other Project Play partners including Nike, the American College of Sports Medicine, and the President’s Council on Fitness Sports & Nutrition, the playbook aggregates the best ideas to emerge in 10 roundtables, an ESPN Town Hall that placed access on the national agenda, and a series of panels hosted at the annual gatherings of national organizations.

The US Olympic Committee (Team USA) American Development Model.  The United States Olympic Committee, in partnership with the National Governing Bodies, created The American Development Model in 2014 to help Americans realize their full athletic potential and utilize sport as a path toward an active and healthy lifestyle.  The model utilizes long-term athlete development concepts to promote sustained physical activity, participation in sport, and Olympic and Paralympic success. These concepts have been tailored to create a framework for developing American youth through sport.
