Canada Basketball Long-Term Athlete Development Model

The Canada Basketball Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Model is based on the Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L) Re- source Paper, developed by Canadian world leaders in the areas of child and sport development. The LTAD Model is athlete centered, coach driven, and administration, sport science, and partners supported. The model integrates elite, community, and scholastic sport, physical education, athletes with a disability, and the general health of the nation.

LTAD is a training, competition, and recovery framework for athletes at all stages of life. LTAD focuses on the general frame- work of athlete development with special reference to growth, maturation, and physical and mental development.

The overall aim of LTAD Model is twofold:

  1. To allow participants to find fun, fitness, social interaction, and self-fulfillment through an all-inclusive sport environment.
  2. To develop competitive pathways that are developmentally appropriate and lead players to the highest possible levels of achievement.
