Long Term Player Development

Sam Snow

Around the world the fact that soccer as a team sport is a long term developmental sport has taken hold. Just look at the curricula of soccer coaching courses from almost every member of FIFA and you’ll see aspects of Long Term Player Development (LTPD) in them. Outside of soccer circles you’ll see the phrase as Long Term Athlete Development. Soccer coaches at every level of the game need to be familiar with these principles. To help you get your tutorial started or reinforced, take a look at this set of videos from our friends at the Ontario Soccer Association. There are 30 clips altogether; about 90 minutes to view entirely. I would suggest watching them all.
