12) What is LTPD and how does it affect my child?      

  • LTPD is an acronym which stands for Long Term Player Development


  • LTPD is a framework used to describe the evolution of development of a player.
  • In more human terms, LTPD is a model to be used by Ontario Soccer Clubs to "right" the soccer ship in Ontario (and throughout Canada).


  • There has been plenty of mis-stated facts about LTPD, usually by those not really understanding LTPD.
  • LTPD is NOT about taking competitiion or the desire to win away from players.
  • LTPD is NOT about turning our youngsters into a "play nice" generation.
  • LTPD is NOT about lumping all players together into one big happy family.


  • LTPD is about treating each player as an individual and giving each individual an opportunity to develop at their own pace and to their own individual optimum level.
  • LTPD is about putting the horse before the cart such that players grow and develop at their own natural pace. We would never consider teaching a child to read before they know the alphabet. Soccer is no different; players must first learn to run/jump/balance/coordinate before we expect them to strike a soccer ball and once they are ready to learn to play with a soccer ball they need to be given an opportunity to learn how to keep it under control otherwise it just rolls away from them.


  • Soccer rich nations around the world have long practiced LTPD principles
  • (for example, in Spain, players do not compete for standings until U15).
  • LTPD is nothing new. The Canadian Soccer Association has simply adopted athletic and soccer development principles from best practices around the world.


  • The implementation of LTPD is a very large task and one we take very seriously at AMBUSC Soccer. In general, the implementation of LTPD means more opportunities for the individual, programs designed for a players development level rather than their chronological age, alot more game play for our players - overall, a whole lot more FUN.
