The Canadian Soccer Association in 2008 launched the Long Term Player Development (LTPD) Model to standardize soccer development across Canada, to provide specific development guidelines for clubs and coaches working with players of all ages from the recreational player to the elite player.
All programs and curriculum at Kelowna United FC are developed by the Kelowna United FC Technical Director and follow the CSA Long term player development model, to ensure we provide the best development environment for each and every player appropriate to their current stage of development.
LTPD is designed to:
- Promote lifelong enjoyment of physical activity.
- Provide a structured player development pathway.
- Describe best practices for elite player development.
- Create long-term excellence.
