The second edition of this book has benefited from the generous feedback we have received from the first edition More than two hundred coaches and trainers who used that first edition provided formal written evaluations for our consideration. Their suggestions helped shape the changes incorporated into the second edition The first edition used suggestions obtained from coaches and trainers through questionnaires and group interviews. In addition, an advisory committee composed of coaches, trainers, school administrators, parents, and team physicians provided excellent guidance for that first effort We hope this new, revised edition will meet the needs of all those who gave us clear and valuable suggestions as well as any others who use the book We hope to continue to revise the book and would value any suggestions for future editions.
