Following the Long Term Athlete Developm

Following the Long Term Athlete Development Plan (LTAD) as outlined in this article will give your youngster a solid start and help avoid the pitfalls of over-reaching when they are young. Sport specialization in kids as young as 10 has a long term detrimental effect on their development as athletes and often leads to a desire to quit all sports as they get older.

The goal of sport shouldn’t be to turn your 7 year old into the next Sydney Crosby, Serena Williams or Tom Brady. It should be to teach them the skills, attitudes and fun that comes with sport so they can carry those benefits for a lifetime.
