Long-Term Athletic Development (LTAD)
LTAD teaches coaches the focus on the development of the individual, not only the technical skill of the game. The program considers the best interest of the athlete and the development of the sport - it is not about winning at all cost. Kids who have fun playing a sport are more likely to stay active and healthy and have a better chance of becoming a top athlete. It is about providing a good experience to grow the sport of Ringette and our coach certification program is in line with the LTAD program. As coaches, you have a responsibility to teach young people about the importance of honesty, teamwork, fair play, respect and rules. Learn more about the LTAD as it is build on sports science and best practices:
