Long-Term Player Development | LTPD


Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) is a CSA soccer-specific adaptation of the Long-Term Athlete Development model (LTAD) developed by Canadian Sport Centres. LTAD is a scientific model for periodized athlete training and development that respects and utilizes the natural stages of physical, mental, and emotional growth in athletes. Like the LTAD program, 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.
