Long Term Player Development

LTPD is a framework used to describe the evolution of the development of a player. This model is being used by Ontario Soccer Association (OSA) Clubs and many others throughout Canada.

LTPD puts the player first by offering age-appropriate opportunities for kids to enjoy the game of soccer. Making the game fun is key in teaching and coaching, so that players will continue in the game and may even coach or referee as they get older.

See below resources the OSA Technical Department has assembled for parents and coaches for Grassroots (U4-U12), Soccer for Life (13+) and Talented Pathway (13+) players.
