Beginning sport in clearly asymmetrical sports such as tennis, golf and baseball is a considerable risk factor for the development of an unbalanced muscular-skeletal system. This problem of unilateral neuromuscular formation increases when the muscular structure is in growth. On the other hand, there are many problems of synonymy  and concepts that the teacher finds when making a plan of training of muscular force as a form of work or physical condition in pre-puberty ages. On this base, we present a work methodology of force with a double orientation for children in pre-puberty ages who begin to play golf: • Potentiality: by means of work of the muscles as a protagonist implied in the technical movement. • Prevention: by means of a work of neuromuscular compensation of the musculature that is fixed and antagonist of movement.

Keywords: Force Training, Pre-Puberty, Sports Beginning.
