Long term Player Development

Long Term Players Development (LTPD) Model

 The Campbell River Youth Soccer Association develops its programs using the Canadian Soccer Associations LTPD Model.

 When many people think of sports, they usually think about basketball, football, and baseball. However, soccer is a very fun sport that is similar to all three of these sports. The Canadian Soccer Association’s Long Term Player Development is a philosophy that is going to be implemented by all soccer organizations right across Canada.  The CSA’s LTPD is part of the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) philosophy which has been adopted by all governments and sport organizations in Canada.

 The Long Term Play Development model (also knows as Wellness to World Cup) consists of seven stages.
