LOOKING AHEAD


Implementing LTAD will require changes at every level and assistance from coaches, parents and administrators. Together, we can work to ensure that athletes are always our primary focus when developing and delivering programming across Canada. LTAD is an opportunity to prepare our athletes at every level and assist them in maintaining a lifelong passion for sport.


The first step in implementing LTAD is education. We encourage parents, coaches and administrators to learn more about LTAD and the Active for Life movement. Developing athletes and active Canadians starts with developing physical literacy at a young age. It is the first three stages of the LTAD that prepares children and youth for future participation in any sport or activity. We also encourage parents, coaches and administrators to become familiar with their role during each stage of our LTAD.


Ultimate Canada will continue to work with administrators to increase the availability of developmentally appropriate programming for all stages. We will continue to work at developing our NCCP courses to better educate and prepare our coaches for their involvement along the pathway.


We encourage everyone to start dialogue regarding our LTAD in order to further refine this document. Our LTAD is a living document that will be updated to reflect changes in our sport as it grows and develop over time.
