National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Youth Training and Long-Term Athletic Development (LTAD) Position Statement and Resources

From the NSCA website (See link above): Long-term athletic development (LTAD) is not merely a blueprint for the aspiring elite athlete; it’s an approach to physical activity and development for children and adolescents of all ages and athletic abilities. The backbone of LTAD is to ensure a safe progression of proper movement, physical literacy, adequate motor skills, and foundational muscular strength as a child grows and physically matures. LTAD addresses youth strength and conditioning, early sport specialization, overtraining, and injury prevention.
