adolescent athlete

adolescent athlete

an athlete in the period between the onset of puberty and full maturity. This is the period of final bone growth and skeletal maturation, which increases the risk from contact injuries to the epiphyses (the ends of the long bones, not yet fused with the main shaft). The psychological changes that accompany the physical changes may result in problems with self-esteem, compliance and motivation.
