LTAD is a 7-stage Canadian model of Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD). It is a training, competition, and recovery program based on developmental age — the maturation level of an individual — rather than chronological age. It is athlete centred, coach driven, and administration, sport science, and sponsor supported. Athletes who progress through LTAD experience training and competition in programs that consider their biological and training ages in creating periodized plans specific to their development needs.
LTAD is a multi-sport concept from which a soccer-specific Long Term Player Development (LTPD) model is developing. As it is implemented, LTPD will have a broad influence on soccer across Canada. It will positively impact Coaching Education Programs at all levels of our game and unite Coaching Educators nation-wide.
