Long term athlete development (LTAD)
Here are some background articles on LTAD. Whilst they may seem quite daunting to parents, we have put them up here to show some of the research that underpins our coaching.
It is easy to listen to anecdotal “Mum chat” on the sidelines of pitches, but this is usually misinformed (albeit well meaning) and you can get sucked into a vortex of competing with other children in the short term; most parents are operating week to week or month to month.
It is hard for parents to think long term when dealing with the day to day logistics involved with supporting a sporty child.
Putting it into practice requires expert support and guidance, and we have developed the Sports Training System for this reason.
I have been training with James for over four years now and firmly believe he has played a key role in my transformation as an athlete and therefore as a footballer. It’s fair to say I was in poor condition in various aspects when we first met, however, James’ ability to focus on the most important things and eliminate the baggage from training has enabled me to develop rapidly, having missed selection for the 2009 European Championships I am now a regular in the starting lineup.
