Abstract

Understanding the psychosocial challenges faced by youth athletes can be key to a successful return to competition following sports injury. This article extends other recent articles that have examined the salient role of psychology within sports injury risk, rehabilitation and return to competition (1) by providing an overview of some of the challenges of working with youth athletes as well as presenting some strategies that can be used to enhance the quality of rehabilitation outcomes. It is hoped that this will stimulate reflective practice and increase practitioner confidence in working with some of the psychosocial challenges presented by youth athletes.
