Monitoring Growth in LTAD (Istvan Balyi)

Lundi, 19 Septembre, 2011

When a coach designs a training, competition, and recovery program for an athlete, the age of the athlete must be taken into consideration. However, along with chronological age, other factors must be taken into consideration as well. This cannot simply be done by checking the athlete’s date of birth.

Obviously athletes with the same chronological age but differing developmental age need different fitness and skill programs. As well, coaches need to consider mental, cognitive and emotional development in planning and programming. Too often, programs are based on chronological age and disregard developmental age (early, average and late maturers).

Join us for Sports Day in Canada - September 17th! (Richard Way)

Lundi, 5 Septembre, 2011

On September 17th, CBC Sports, ParticipACTION and True Sport are presenting Sports Day in Canada. Sports Day in Canada is a national celebration of sport, with events happening in communities all across the country.

You can find an event in your area on September 17th or during the week leading up to Sports Day (Sept 10th – 17th). Or if you have a great idea for an event you can organizer, register and promote your own event and invite your friends and others in your community to join in! Experience a new sport – like Ringette at the many “Come Try Ringette” events; watch some Train to Compete and Train to Win athletes at competitions like the 2011 Canadian Wakeboard Championships in Kamloops, BC or take a coaching or officiating course at clinics like the NCCP Super Clinic at Bill Crothers High School in Unionville, Ontario.

Welcome to the CS4L Blog

Mardi, 30 Aout, 2011

We would like to personally welcome you to the new Canadian Sport for Life website and now the new CS4L Blog. Over the past year together we have all made some big leaps in the CS4L movement. We have had the opportunity, with the support of B2Ten to start building the movement from “the bottom up” with our Actif pour la VieActive for Life initiative, we have entered the next phase of the movement – Phase 3: implementation, and we now have refreshed our website to make it more user friendly and are entering the world of social media with our Twitter account, Facebook page and now the blog.

The CS4L Blog will be an area for CS4L Champions – you – to interact with and learn from the Leadership Team as we talk about the great work that is happening in Canada, and around the world, and delve into our areas of expertise and hot button topics.
