LTAD (Long Term Athlete Development)

The Long Term Athlete Development Model consists of 7 stages:

      Stages 1-3 develop physical literacy before puberty so children have the basic skills to be active for life. Physical literacy also provides the foundation for those athletes who pursue elite training in one sport or activity after age 12.



      Stages 4-6 provide elite training for those who specialize in one sport and compete at the highest level. These athletes maximize their physical, mental and emotional development.



      Stage 7 is about staying Active for Life through lifelong participation in sport or physical activity.



Nova Synchro

      focuses on delivering programs between the FUNdamental and Train to Compete stages.
