Long Term Athlete Development

The Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model is a concept developed in many countries. LTAD is used to develop a complete sport system that is multi-sport based (not just for field hockey). The LTHD (Long Term Hockey Development Model) was developed by Field Hockey Canada in 2008/2009. FHA has LTHD posters available for all parents, coaches and athletes with details for all the various stages of the LTHD which include tactical, technical, mental, physical & health requirements for each stage. Stages are developed based on chronological age and training age. For more details about the LTAD please visit the Canadian Sport 4 Life website. FHA and the rest of the provincial field hockey programs in Canada are adopting this model for the development of our athletes.
