Whether a youngster is in soccer to simply stay active and fit or aspires to play at very competitive levels, LTPD is geared to developing youngsters in an environment that is stimulating, enriching—and fun.

The basic premise is this: at the younger ages (4 through 12) we will focus, incrementally, on physical literacy, touches on the ball, skill development and eventually, training to “compete”. The objective is to help every player develop to his or her true potential, at whatever level they want to play. We can achieve this through improved coaching methods along with superior training and development programs that we will start to introduce in 2013.

Competition and education

        • Recreational players will enjoy the game much more than before. Importantly, they will also learn more and
           provide an improved environment for players at every age and stage of development.
        • This is very much about education—better education, training and preparation for our youth coaches, who in turn will for
          all. model healthier        

• Will your sons and daughters stop playing games and stop competing? Not at all. But again, the emphasis will be different 
           going forward. We are working on re-shaping the structure of our leagues to maintain competition and create because they are learning
and enjoying their experience, will want to stay active in the sport. Elite players will benefit, because the new
           player pathway we are developing will ensure that, wherever your son or daughter plays in the province, they will have the
           opportunity to be seen, identified and recommended for more intensive training at a regional and ultimately “provincial” 

           level of play.
