Long Term Player Development

Canada Soccer's Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) model is a comprehensive framework that prioritizes the holistic development of soccer players from childhood through adulthood. It emphasizes age-appropriate programming, quality coaching, and a clear pathway for players to progress through seven distinct developmental stages, each tailored to the unique needs and capabilities of players at that age.

LTPD promotes physical literacy by providing a broad foundation of movement skills and encourages multisport participation to prevent burnout and foster well-rounded athletes. It also emphasizes the importance of integrated support services, including sports science, nutrition, mental health, and injury prevention, to support the overall development of players.

By placing the needs and development of the player at the center of all programming decisions, LTPD aims to foster a love for the game and lifelong participation in soccer. The model is continuously evaluated and updated to ensure its effectiveness in nurturing talent, promoting inclusivity, and enhancing the overall soccer experience nationwide.
