A growing body of literature recognizes talent identification as a fundamental component in sport science, with researchers continually attempting to find effective methods to identify the best performers for the future. However, optimal performance in young age does not guarantee an expert athlete in the future. Moreover, the maturational process is an important landmark in performance development.
This Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, “Training and Performance in Youth Sports”, offers an opportunity to publish high-quality experiments, original papers, and opinion letters in the field of training and performance in youth sport and discussion related to achieving higher performances in youth sports. We are particularly interested in the following research topics: talent identification, expertise, growth and maturation, technical and tactical development, sex differences, and training load and performance analysis in both individual and team sports. We would welcome papers related to evidence of successful intervention strategies. All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by experts in the field by November 2020.
