TRAINING BASED PROGRAMME
“It takes at least 10 years of extensive practice to excel in anything.”
H Simon, Nobel Laureate
“10 years or 10,000 hours.”
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
training, competition and recovery
an athlete’s career, particularly in relation to the important growth and development years of young people.Slide18
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
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
HOW OLD IS A 13 YEAR OLD??
HOW OLD IS A 13 YEAR OLD??Slide23
“Our task is not to do something dramatic to please people in the short term. It is to establish the structure for long term success.”
