Player Training & Development

Long Term Player Development Curriculum

LTPD Is about putting the player first and 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.

This is an exciting new program dealing with the development of athletes.  The philosophy behind the development of athletes has evolved and this evolution is being accepted and lauded by educators and sport governing bodies.  In our sport, this approach is referred to as “long-term player development” (“LTPD”).

Malton Soccer Club has embraced this new ways of doing things!
