“If a long term approach to training is not adopted, there is likely to be a plateau in performance when growth and development slow significantly. At this point the short term training approach cannot be reversed, and athletes often drop out before achieving close to their potential.” This workshop examines the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) of our athletes, ensuring they are exposed to the right thing at the right time in their athletic journey to maximise their potential at senior level.
Anyone who is interested in the welfare and the long term development of the athlete (e.g. Parents, Coaches and Club officials).
3.5 hours delivered on an evening with no assessment
The course will introduce you to the key factors and pitfalls of athletic development. You will learn the LTAD principles in maximising sporting talent and achieving the important goal of long-term athletic development. You will learn that LTAD is ‘everything’, with a focus on process leading to achievement, as opposed to a performance outcome.
You will be able to apply the learned LTAD principles into your coaching practice. Parents and club officials will be able to support the athlete in their long term ambitions of sporting success at senior level.
