5 key elements that developing athletes need to focus on over the course of their growth. Each sport has an ideal percentage distribution of emphasis of the 5 elements. These elements are known as the 5 S's: Skill, Strength, Speed, Stamina, and Suppleness. Each has a critical window of trainability which when optimized creates a lifelong ability that is never forgotten- much like learning to ride a bike!
