Hill, Grant M.; Hansen, Gary F.
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, v59 n5 p76-79 May-Jun 1988
Arguments for and against high school sport specialization, where student athletes limit their athletic participation to one sport which they practice, train for, and compete in for the entire school year, are presented. Discussed are: performance improvement, greater recognition, fewer injuries, burnout, less attention to other sports, increased sports budget, and chronic or major injuries. (CB)
