SPECIAL POPULATIONS: We emphasize that clients considered to be members of a "special population" are not always an individual or individuals with infectious or chronic diseases and disabilities. Special populations also encompass groups or individuals whose training needs require alternative strategies. Examples can include but not be limited to: pregnancy, injuries, young athletes (basketball, soccer, weightlifters, baseball players/pitchers, police, firefighters, emergency medical professionals, soldiers, post-rehabilitation clients, etc... or any group where special supplementary training to prevent injuries and enhance physical function is warranted. Authors should consider any "select population" meeting this description of a "special population". We welcome submissions to this area, and are recruiting authors for the entire 2015 Volume Year.

OPEN ACCESS ARTICLE:  One article in each issue is free open access on the journal webpage.  Encourage your colleagues, students, etc to take advantage of this free article.  The free article for this issue is "Strength and Conditioning Preparation for the Transitional Track & Field Thrower" by Mike Waller, Matthew Gersick, Robert Townsend, and Candus Ford.
