Long Term Player Development

Long Term Player Development (LTPD) is a scientific model for athlete training and development that respects and utilizes the natural stages of physical, mental, and emotional growth in athletes. The Burlington Youth Soccer Club has embraced LTPD as the backbone of the Club and has incorporated this model in Club programming and decision making.
