Athlete and Skill Development

NORDIQ CANADA: Skill Development Program (SDP)

Nordiq Canada has developed a modern, state-of-the-art progression of skill development programs for children. This exciting program conforms to the Canadian LTAD model and provides development opportunities for children in the first stages of skier development.

  • The Bunnyrabbit Program is directed at children in the ‘Active Start’ stage of development. This is the first level of the SDP program.
  • The Jackrabbit Program is directed at children in the ‘FUNdamentals’ stage of development. This is the second level of the SDP program.
  • The Track Attack Program is directed at children in the ‘Learning to Train’ stage of development. This is the third level of the SDP program.

SPORT CANADA: Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Model

Children, youth, and adults need to do the right things at the right time to develop in their sport or activity – whether they want to be hockey players, dancers, figure skaters, or gymnasts. Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) describes the things athletes need to be doing at specific ages and stages.

Benefits of LTAD Model

  1. Rise in levels of physical literacy
  2. Less chance of injuries
  3. Fewer dropouts from training
  4. Better choices of sport
  5. More trust in your sports club
  6. Higher sporting achievements
  7. Happier people!
