ABOUT TALENT'S AFTER SCHOOL MULTI SPORT PROGRAM

Offered to the private schools in Oakville and Burlington

WHAT IS TALENT – YOUNG ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT

The Talent YAD multi sport program is based on the Canadian Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) concept and includes a well rounded number of sports designed for children between 6-12 year old. The purpose of the program is to stimulate, develop and maximize a wide range of motor abilities, skills and attitudes necessary to be a successful athlete and be physically active for life.

WHY MULTI SPORT

Exposing children to many different sports at an early age will enhance their motor abilities, skills and knowledge that are transferable, adoptable and necessary for success in any recreational or competitive sport.  In fact, children should not specialize in a single sport until they are well into their teens. Only a few sports fall in the category of an early specialization (from 4-6 years of age) and they are gymnastics, figure skating, diving and synchronized swimming. All other sports belong to a late specialization category of 12 years of age or later.  According to numerous studies, early specialization often leads to injuries due to the over-use of the same muscle groups, early burnout and withdrawal from the chosen sport. At the same time, they lack the skills and do not feel confident enough to get involved in a different sport and often stop playing sports altogether.

    LEARN TO TRAIN FOR 9-12 YEARS OLD ATHLETES


    Our training process is delivered in a well-structured environment. During each practice, we focus on the particular development of one or more motor abilities. Young athletes will learn basic technical elements of different sports, rules, and tactical concepts. In addition, during practice athletes have a chance to apply learned skills in different game situations. We expose our participants to many sports activities and games from around the world.

    Our older athletes begin with the “Learn to Train” stage. Their training process is a one year cycle that prepares young athletes for future sport specialization. During this cycle, the focus will be on learning basic technical-tactical elements, rules, strategies, and a combination of these sports:
    • Basketball
    • Soccer
    • Team Handball
    • Volleyball
    • Ski school – optional but highly recommended
    In the later stage of the one year cycle, athletes will apply learned skills and elements to a game situation. In addition, martial arts, tennis, track and field, basic gymnastic elements, and many different sports games and activities are still a part of the program to provide necessary motivation and motoric diversity.
