Growth and physical maturation are dynamic processes encompassing a broad spectrum of cellular and somatic changes. The most obvious signs of physical growth are changes in overall body size. The children of the same age may differ in rate of physical growth. Ethnic variations in growth rate are also common. Thus growth norms (age-related averages for height and weight) must be applied cautiously. Physical growth, like other aspects of development, results from a complex interplay between genetic and environmental factors. Moreover, the endocrine glands also control the vast physical changes of childhood and adolescence. Although heredity remains important, environmental factors continue to affect genetic expression. Good nutrition, relative freedom from disease, and emotional well-being are essential to children’s healthy development. Changes in size, proportions, and muscle strength support an explosion of new gross-motor skills. Physical activity is needed for normal growth and development, and for young people to reach their potential in muscle and bone development. Further, the psychological, social, and physical development process project powerful influences on sport participation. Sports scientists, physicians and physical educators must be familiar with the normal patterns of growth and development of the child and adolescent. This allow finding out deviations during the pre-participation examination, guiding children into appropriate activities, aiding them in setting realistic goals concerning sports participation. It also provides guidance to the community and coaches in the design of safe and effective training and sports programme.

Childhood obesity is a condition in which excess body fat negatively related with the child's health or well being. Due to the increasing trend of obesity in children and its adverse health effects it is emerging as a serious public health problem. In order to prevent obesity in children it would be fruitful to perform a population wide evaluation of the dietary intake in relation to physical activity.In order to help children, parents, educators, students, coaches, researchers and practitioners seek assistance from the vast amount of technical information that is available in the form of books, journals or websites.

Futsal is the format of Small Sided Football that is recognised and supported by FIFA and UEFA with World and African, Asian, American (North and Central and South), Oceanian and European Championships for Club and National Teams.
The name “Futsal” simply combines the Spanish words for “Hall” – Sala and “Football” – Fútbol into futsal. It is a five-a-side game, played with hockey sized goals and a smaller ball with a reduced bounce.
Futsal is also the World’s fastest growing indoor sport. In fact, the IOC are in talks deciding if Futsal becomes an Olympic Sport or not for the next Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro (Brasil) or in 2020. Futsal was developed in Brasil and Uruguay in the 1930s and 1940s as a solution to the lack of available football fields. Since the beginnings Futsal has been very popular in South America, Portugal, Spain and Italy. In the last decade, Futsal has increased a lot in Asian countries such as Iran, Japan, Kuwait...
However, there is a lack of scientific papers about futsal in English language. Only a couple of authors (one Spanish and one Italian) have published some futsal articles in English. On the contrary, there are hundreds of papers, articles and documents about futsal written in Portuguese, Spanish or Italian. This fact is not helping to develop futsal in the right way, as many international coaches, S&C coaches, physiotherapists, doctors cannot understand those language. Therefore, if we want to develop futsal as a professional sport, we need to be able to increase the level in futsal in all the fields. The only way to get that objective is trying to get as many as possible articles in English, since that language is the international one.
