The Player Development Curriculum-Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD)
The summer camp program is developed using the scientific guiding principles developed by world renowned coach educators Istvan Balyi and Richard Way called the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) framework. Using this framework the coaches teach a particular aspect of the game to players at specific stages of development. The camp is designed to deliver a practical, functional and sequential development model to help the player master the game. With this systematic approach, the skills and abilities required to excel in basketball are achieved. It also ensures that all participants will receive the appropriate training that will produce well-rounded people who maintain a lifelong passion for the sport.
The philosophy behind Progressive Coaching is to challenge and engage each player individually as well as in a group in order to achieve the best results. When applied, every player will see a marked improvement in himself or herself as well as the entire team. We ensure that the goals for each player are challenging, attainable, and enable the player to keep building on a particular skill.
How it works
With Progressive Coaching, an assessment (baseline measurement) is made of the strengths and weaknesses of each player individually. Once this baseline measurement is set, a customized program is developed to help the player reach his or her goal. Equally important to individual goals is the establishment of team goals to give the group something to collectively strive towards every practice and game. At the end of every session, an evaluation is conducted to check on player’ progress and adjustments are made in the next session to ensure learning.
