For our members with an interest in youngsters being athletic for life.

Most of our club members have young kids, plan to have them, or look forward to when their children have them. I just saw this opportunity to listen to Dr. Norris. Sorry for the short notice. I went to a talk by Stephen about 4 months after I moved to Calgary, so about 10 years ago and really took a lot away from it. I still remember a lot of the key points from this talk. He is a very experienced coach and a resource for all parents wondering what their kids should be doing (athletically speaking) at different ages. STC will cover the entry into this as I think it would be an important talk for most parents like us. Make a comment if you can come and I will have you registered. Please, if you plan to come, please give me advanced notice (in the comments or email) so I can have you registered.

LONG TERM ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT MODEL

Come and learn about the new Canadian Long Term Athlete Development.
This is a seven stage model based on the physical, mental, emotional and cognitive development of children and adolescents. Each stage reflects a different point of athlete development. The LTAD model positively affects the quality of training and competition by taking into consideration factors such as developmental age and critical periods of optimal trainability.
