LTAD Orienteering Canada Guide
New Orienteering Canada resources for Jr/beginner programs
Orienteering Canada is excited to share the results of Phase 1 of the development of a National Athlete Development Matrix (ADM), which is a document that describes what skills athletes should be learning at each stage of development. On the LTAD web page, you will find a series of tools to help instructors, coaches, and program administrators implement this matrix throughout their programs. These new resources include a Technical Skills Progression document, a Technical Skills Development chart, a set of Lesson Plans for an 8-week junior program, and a Lesson Plan template that can be adapted to different programs. This is a big step forward on the road to creating a complete ADM. Big thanks to Jeff Teutsch and Kate Knapp for their work so far.
We encourage feedback (via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in person to Kate Knapp, Jeff Teutsch, or Kitty Jones) as we move this project along.
