Kaizen, the principle of constant improvement, is a key factor of Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD). Since the first “Canadian Sport for Life – Long-Term Athlete Development” guide was released in 2005, and updated in 2013, LTAD has become one of the world’s most influential athlete development frameworks. This webinar, presented by Sport for Life’s Dr. Colin Higgs and Dr. Paul Jurbala, provides a preview the next generation of LTAD: LTAD 3.0. Results from the Progress Tracker survey of National Sport Organizations, the latest research and over ten years of Canadian and international implementation of LTAD all inform version 3.0 – the next generation of LTAD. The webinar will be available in English only.

Theme – Working Together
The theme of this year’s Summit is “Working Together”. If we want to give participants in sport and physical activity the best possible chance to succeed, then we must ensure collaboration within the sport system and across the recreation, education and health sectors. Partnership and working agreement are needed at all stages of development. Given multisport athletes are more likely to thrive later in their chosen sport, what are we doing to collaborate at the early stage? This year’s Summit seeks promising practices to share with the delegates. There are great examples of ‘Working Together’ so now let’s work together to share and utilize them to create systematic change.
