“It takes at least 10 years of extensive practice to excel in anything.”

H Simon, Nobel Laureate

“10 years or 10,000 hours.”

Ericsson and

Charness

Salmela

et al

10,000 hours in 10 years:

- 20 hours per week x 50 weeks per yearSlide16

WHAT IS LTAD?

Putting the needs of the ATHLETE at the centre of everything we do in our sport

A philosophy not a programme

An understanding that performances improve due to:

-

Growth & development

- Properly Planned TrainingSlide17

DOING THE RIGHT THINGS AT THE RIGHT TIME

Long Term Athlete Development is about achieving

optimal

training, competition and recovery

throughout

an athlete’s career, particularly in relation to the important growth and development years of young people.Slide18

WHY LTAD?

The “critical” periods of accelerated adaptation are not fully utilised.

Under development between 6-16 years cannot be fully overcome:

athletes will never reach full potential

.

The best coaches are encouraged to work at elite level.

Coach education tends to skim the growth, development and maturation of young people.Slide19

COMMON PROBLEMS

Young athletes under-train, over-compete.

Low training to competition ratios in early years.

Adult competition superimposed on young athletes.

Adult training programmes superimposed on young athletes.

Male programmes superimposed on females.

Training in early years focuses on outcomes (winning) rather than processes (optimal training).

Chronological age dominates training rather than biological age.Slide20

CHRONOLOGICAL Vs DEVELOPMENTAL AGE

Training and competition is based on chronological age

Athletes can be 4 - 5 years apart by maturation levels

Training a biologically 11 or 15 year old the same way?

Players progress because they get

OLDER

or

BIGGER
