We think it should be noted in this regard, especially at a youth level in general and not only on an under-15 level and single pyrometry, that many traumatic incidents that populate the youth activities, particularly the more structured one, perhaps is even the cause that does not allow the final structuring of young athletes as well as progressive educational proposals relating to the training load and the amount of it in addition to the total amount of the work; very often it's not taken in consideration that the work to be carried out in one year can be done even in just three months just to avoid the skeletal-muscular structures responsible for movement an unsuitable work which could lead to poor structuring of the latters that maybe in long terms may be the causes of traumas.
