Adolescent changes in size, build, composition and performance are considered. Emphasis is placed upon general age trends and sex differences for a variety of parameters, with no specific consideration of maturity relationships which are significant. Sex differences in most body dimensions, though apparent, are generally minor during the pre-adolescent years. It is during adolescence that most adult differences in morphology, composition and performance have their genesis.
