When children learn the right skills at the right time, they become more confident in their abilities and have a lot more fun. This means more of them will grow into healthy, active adults with a lifelong love of the game. Training and competing in an environment that’s appropriate to their stage of development, they not only perform at their best, they also have more fun.
This is what LTPD (Long Term Player Development) is based on. A scientific model for periodized athlete training and development that respects and utilizes the natural stages of physical, mental, and emotional growth in athletes. It has already been adopted by major sports organizations within such countries as the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Canada.
LTPD is designed to:
1. Promote lifelong enjoyment of physical activity.
2. Provide a structured player development pathway.
3. Describe best practices for elite player development.
4. Create long-term excellence.
LTDP is based on general findings that the greater the quality of player preparation, the greater the likelihood that players of all abilities will remain active throughout their lifetimes, and the greater the likelihood that the performance peaks of those who pursue excellence will be higher and maintained over a longer period.
Our development will empower them to successfully overcome future sporting challenges while simultaneously instilling the personal values which are so representative of the Sault Youth Soccer Club such as tolerance, respect, solidarity, friendship, fair play, integration, effort and happiness.
All Sessions will be developed and implemented by Club Head Coach Anthony Romano.
Anthony is Certified Ontario Soccer C licensed and National B coach. Anthony Romano also has completed his Level 1, Level 2 and the Senior Level coaching courses as well as Soccer For Life, Making Headway In Soccer, Make Ethical Decisions, Respect In Soccer, and is a certified Referee with Ontario Soccer.
