Seminar to focus on youth sports burnout and overuse

HERSHEY, Pa. — A free seminar about preventing burnout, overtraining and overuse injuries in youth sports will be presented by Lindsey Moroski, exercise physiologist, at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 18 at the University Conference Center, Room 203A, on the Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center campus.

In this seminar, parents and coaches can learn about signs and symptoms to look for, as well as play time restrictions to help prevent injuries and burnout. Many parents and even coaches don't realize what is going on until it is too late and the child either has an injury, or wants to quit because it is no longer fun for them.
