Long-Term Athlete Development for Girls & Young Women


Mar. 24, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Event Information


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, a number of bumps, roadblocks, and dead ends exist along the LTAD pathway for girls and young women.

Building on CAAWS’ popular publication “Actively Engaging Women and Girls: Addressing the Psycho-Social Factors,” this LTAD for Girls & Young Women webinar will identify a number of 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.
