THE COACHING PATHWAY AND LTPD THROUGH EDUCATION
LONG-TERM PLAYER DEVELOPMENT AND COACHING EDUCATION
With LTPD as the guide, the OSA Coaching Department has launched new online resources for coaches working at all levels of the game in Ontario.
Under CSA leadership, LTPD now supports the framework for high-quality programs that ensure enjoyable lifelong playing opportunities for players of all levels of ability.
Coaches can enter the pathway at any level ie, a coach who is coaching 7 year olds can start their coach development at Stage 2, FUNdamentals.
Unlike the previous program there is no requirement to take Stage 1, Active Start. Coaches can now take courses directly related to the needs of the players they coach.
The LTPD diagram shows how the OSA Coach Development programs align with the CSA’s Long Term Player Development Pathway.
