Epstein Photo2014 BayCare Sports Medicine Conference

Keeping Young Athletes in the Game

This year’s conference theme focuses on the student athlete who is involved in high school and middle school sports, as well as those involved in other physical activities.

Featured Presentation

The keynote speaker is David Epstein, journalist and author of
The Sports Gene, who will present “10,000: The Most Dangerous Number in Sports.” The session will explain the origins of the “10,000 hours rule” – that it takes approximately 10,000 hours of deliberate practice to master a skill – and whether rigorous and consistent practice from a young age is the only route to athletic excellence. He’ll also discuss how it is currently being applied to youth sports in a manner that is damaging both to the ultimate performance of youth athletes, and to their health.

In addition, there is an impressive lineup of professionals who will present health topics relevant to the active young athlete during the day-long seminar:

  • Preventing Overuse Injuries – Douglas Carlan, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon
  • Nurturing Resilience in Adolescent Athletes: Fad or Tipping Point – Nick Dewan, MD, Sports and Performance Psychiatrist
  • Female Athletes and Eating Disorders – Kim Costello, Psy.D., LMHC, BCPC, FAPA, CEDS
  • The Heart of a Young Athlete – Augustine Agocha, MD, PhD, Cardiologist
  • Sudden Cardiac Death in the Young Athlete: An Athlete's Paradox - Kevin Makati, MD, Cardiologist
  • Growing Popularity of the Youth Triathlete – John Gross, MD, Family Medicine and Sports Medicine
  • Managing Your Child Athlete’s Asthma – Matias Jasin, MD, Pediatrician
  • Nutrition: The Competitive Edge – Charlotte Mapes, RDN
  • Preventing ACL Injuries in the Young Athlete – William Cottrell, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon
  • Hidden Threats: Concussion in the Young Athlete – Ted Farrar, MD, Family Medicine and Sports Medicine
