LTAD Considerations to Actively Engage Girls and Young Women Presentation (1 hour)
The Canadian Sport for Life movement and use of long-term athlete development (LTAD) pathways are improving the delivery of sport and physical activity in Canada. However, many bumps, roadblocks, and dead ends exist along the LTAD pathway for girls and young women.
Discussion will focus on several key issues central to supporting girls and young women as athletes and leaders, including training environments, injury prevention, role models, and “on- and off-ramps”.
Practical recommendations will be provided for coaches, recreation leaders, teachers, and sport administrators. This presentation can be delivered in-person or via webinar.
