Coaches in the Competition stream have previous coaching experience or are former athletes. They are committed to improve athletes’ performance at the provincial, national, and international level.
There are three levels of workshops for Competition Coaches which reflect the stages of the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD).
The Competition-Introduction Context
Is designed for Coaches of athletes moving from the FUNdamentals to the Learn to Train and Train to Train stages of the LTAD.
The Competition-Development Context
Is designed for Coaches of athletes ranging from the Train to Train to the Train to Compete stages of LTAD.
The Competition-High Performance Context
Is typically reserved for Coaches of athletes in the Train to Win stage of the LTAD. Although, there is the possibility of some athletes in the Train to Compete stage phasing into the Competition-High Performance Context because of the fluidity of the stages. Coaches in this stream require specific skills and abilities in order to meet the needs of their athletes.
