Sports Talent reveals the factors most important to athletic success. Author Jim Brown, with the input of many leading experts, identifies the key variables and their relative contribution to performance, then explains how they apply to different sports and even to different positions within those sports. Physical characteristics, mental and emotional attributes, and intangibles all come into play; you?ll learn how. If you are an aspiring athlete, the parent of a potential star, a coach who works with athletes 8 to 20 years old, or a scout looking to refine your assessment criteria, this book will tell you what to expect in the development process and how to overcome obstacles. From diamonds in the rough to gene-gifted thoroughbreds, Sports Talent will give you a sharper, more objective and sharper perspective from which to evaluate athletic potential as well as concrete advice on how to maximize those tools.
