Long-Term Athlete Development PDF Print E-mail

ltad_manual_coverOntario Volleyball is committed to Long Term Athlete Development and its principles. LTAD enables athletes to experience training and competition programs that consider their  biological and training ages and prepare them for a life in sport.

The Federal, Provincial and Territorial Ministers of Sport have identified LTAD as the framework for sport development in Canada.

What is LTAD?

LTAD is a training, competition, and recovery program. It establishes guidelines for coaches, athletes, administrators, and parents in all areas, including planning, training, competition, and recovery. It takes into account the ever-changing competitive program and the overall demands on the athletes. Long-term athlete development is also about identifying potential and providing appropriate developmental pathways for that potential to be fully realized. It is about ensuring that everyone who wants to learn sport has the opportunity. ... The best sport development programs have a long-term vision, adapt and account for the rates at which an athlete matures rather than planning programs based solely on chronological age, are athlete centered, coach driven, but strongly supported by administration, sport science, and sponsors.

The volleyball LTAD Working Group—a group of some of Canada’s foremost volleyball experts— was tasked with devising a “Made in Canada”  solution to volleyball’s development woes. This LTAD Strategy for volleyball is their vision. It is an affirmation of the potential they see in our nation. It is what we could be if we look for solutions instead of problems. It is what we could be if we all agree to strive for a common goal.
