Player Pathway

Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD)

Player Pathway – Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD)

The LTAD model is a seven-stage framework. It guides the participation, training, competition and recovery pathways in sport and physical activity. This is used from infancy through all stages of adulthood.

  1. Active Start
  2. FUNdamentals
  3. Learn to Train
  4. Train to Train
  5. Train to Compete
  6. Train to Win
  7. Active for Life

LTAD focuses on the needs of participants and their individual stages of development. It also provides a point of reference for coaches, administrators, parents and sport scientists. The model recognises both participation and performance-orientated pathways in sport and physical activity. It also comes after the fun-based development of physical literacy in the early years. The framework also provides guidance to improve the quality of sport and physical activity by helping children become physically literate.

Athletes under the LTAD model experience developmentally appropriate training and competition programmes at all ages. This increases their participation and optimises performance. People also develop physical literacy during the first three stages of LTAD. This allows them to move on to the later stages.
