Physically, there are a number of orthopedic risks for players. Injuries develop such as throwing, jumping, swinging, running, etc.
Common Overuse Injuries in Youth Athletes
- Tennis elbow

Beyond the orthopedic risks, early specialization in sports can limit overall performance and skill development. Participating in other sports can help athletes improve a variety of skill sets, potentially improving performance in their favorite sports.
