What age can I start training at EM?

This varies by athlete, but youth athletes have started as young as 7 years old, although 10 years old is a great starting age at EM. It’s best to do an evaluation to see what is individually appropriate for each athlete.  One great reason to start training early is that older athletes usually revert to habits learned at a young age during pressure or stressful situations.  If you learn good mechanics at a young age, you just build strength and maturity on a good foundation.
