A lot has changed since I played sports, only 10 years ago. Outside of football, most sports are played competitively to some degree year round. While this is great for young people to stay active and spend less time in front of screens, it changes the way they train since there is now limited offseason time. In some unfortunate cases, some aren’t even training at all. Actual gameplay and training are very different and should each be optimally implemented throughout the year. Unfortunately, I believe one is hammered into the ground while one is wildly neglected.
