Webinar | Long Term Athlete Development

Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) is a sports development model that focuses on the physical, cognitive, and emotional development of athletes over a prolonged period of time. The goal of LTAD is to promote lifelong physical activity and athletic performance while reducing the risk of injury and burnout.
Three learning objectives for understanding LTAD are:
To understand the different stages of athlete development, including the basic movement skills, fundamental sports skills, and high-performance skills required to succeed in a particular sport.
To recognize the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach to athlete development, including training, nutrition, and psychological support.
To appreciate the value of long-term planning and commitment to athlete development, including the need for a supportive and inclusive sports culture that encourages participation and growth for all athletes, regardless of their level of ability.
