Learn About LTAD / Player Development

Sport for Life is a movement that began in 2005, to improve the quality of sport and physical activity in Canada. A key feature of Sport for Life is Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD), a developmental pathway and training guide not only for developing top-rank athletes but also for increasing overall participation in a sport. The vision behind Sport for Life is to reshape how we support sport and train athletes at all levels in Canada – from children to adults, from grassroots sports through to the National level. In realizing this vision, the aim is to keep more Canadians active for life with recreational sport and physical activity, and at the same time help Canadians in all sports win more medals internationally.

BCB LTAD Bowls A Sport for Life Bowls Canada Boulingrin, in partnership with Sport Canada, has developed a bowls specific LTAD framework that lays out the development stages that a player will go through as they learn the sport regardless of the age they begin playing. The LTAD guide called, “Bowls, A Sport for Life” can be found on the Bowls Canada Athlete Development page.

The guide outlines the key factors that influence athlete development and long term quality participation. It includes descriptions of the various stages of learning and charts skills performance indicators for a coach or individual to use and evaluate one’s ability, knowledge and readiness to compete competitively.

For further information on LTAD from BCB see the presentation entitled LTAD Overview by BCB.
