"An indispensable guide for any coach or parent concerned with making sport healthier and more ethical. This book brings fresh ideas to the practice of sport and truly represents thinking outside the box. As human beings, we only have one body so we need to treat it well. Too many athletes leave sport with long-term injuries and a record of underperformance. The ideas in this book can change that and allow everyone in sport to get the most out of talents and ambitions."Jim Denison -- Professor, University of Alberta, Director, Canadian Athletics Coaching Centre "The authors show that programs of sport and wellness can be complementary, not mutually exclusive. Thus, long-term athlete development is consistent with the goals of North American initiatives--Sport Canada, the President's Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition."CHOICE: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries
