  • <p><strong>Aim:</strong> Physical conditioning of youth has always been a controversial topic as it raises ethical, physiological, and medical issues. Current recommendations and guidelines suggest that strength training is a relatively safe and worthwhile method in conditioning youth. This, however, requires well-informed coaches who follow age-appropriate strength training recommendations and guidelines, compiles well-designed strength training programs, and provides qualified supervision and instructions. The purpose of this study was to investigate coaches’ awareness of current recommendations and guidelines regarding strength training for youth.</p><p><strong>Method</strong>: A total of 39 football (US: soccer) coaches (34 males and 5 females) training boys in age groups 8–12 years were included in this study. Data were collected using an attitude statement questionnaire, and the assertions were based upon current recommendations and guidelines.</p><p><strong>Results</strong>: The results revealed significant differences among coaches in terms of knowledge of important aspects of strength training for youth.</p><p><strong>Conclusions</strong>: The results suggested that coaches in the present study were not aware of the latest recommendations and guidelines regarding strength training for youth.</p>
