UNDERSTANDING THE TEN LTAD FACTORS


The following factors are the research, principles and tools upon which LTAD is built.


Developing Physical Literacy – The FUNdamentals Competence in fundamental movement and sport skills creates a foundation (physical literacy) for an individual’s enjoyment and ongoing participation or pursuit of excellence in sport. Physical literacy must be developed through fun and games at an early age in order to take advantage of sensitive windows of trainability (i.e. before the onset of the adolescent growth spurt).

Sporting Excellence


Like many other sports, participation in Ultimate requires the ability to perform fundamental movement and sports skills including throwing, catching, jumping and running. Ultimate has the opportunity to contribute in the development of future athletes and elite Ultimate players through the development of stage-appropriate programs.


Spirit of the Game is a great tool to teach children basic skills of conflict resolution and fair play alongside their development of fundamental movement and sports skills to develop well- rounded athletes.
