An effective arm action is essential for sprinting success. Proper arm movement helps increase the leg drive, maintain balance, and reduce fatigue.
As coaches, parents, and mentors, we all want to connect with the children we work with. It’s important to build a rapport with them in order to get the best out of them, but how can we do this?

Pushing kids for early success can cause burnout, injury, and loss of enjoyment.
