Dear list members,
I just started treating young german soccer players (highest national
level (I know that this is not high in the moment - lol)) aged 10-18
years as a new job.

Up to now I just have experience with adults and the traditional sports
injuries of adults with low level.

So Ive got some questions concerning my new patients:

Could you please tell me about the aspects I have to pay attention the
very most concerning the age of the players? Which are the differences
to adults? When could I start jogging, playing with the ball, sprinting,

Who knows about special treatment programs for young persons?

Which are the most frequent injuries of young soccer players?

adult, does it heal faster?

I would be very happy, if some of you could give me important
