Healthy Weight Training for Young Athletes

There is a lot of advice when it comes to weight training among young athletes today. Every week at the Children’s Hospital Colorado physical therapy clinic, we listen to a lot of different opinions on how a young athlete should train during the season. As a sports medicine therapist, however, it is important to note that not all of these opinions are accurate.

To clarify what healthy weight training for young athletes should look like, it is important to first find out when, where and how it is safe for kids to start weight training.

District News

High school students across Douglas County, and many students in respective feeder schools, are once again learning that a little kindness can go a long way. Again this year, our high schools hosted Wish Weeks to make dreams come true for Make-A-Wish Foundation beneficiaries.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education has named Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D. as the sole finalist to lead our 68,000-student district as superintendent on a unanimous vote.


The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) has certified Sagewood Middle School as a Recognized ASCA National Model Program (RAMP). A prestigious honor, Sagewood is now the only middle school in the state of Colorado to have gained this certification. Schools must receive a near-perfect score on ASCA’s scoring rubric, which outlines guidelines for building and maintaining student achievement, behavior, counseling curriculum, school culture, and several other factors, in order to become certified.
