Boxing Canada (LTAD)
The Boxing Canada LTAD sets out the process of an athlete’s participation in sport from the earliest acquisition of basic skills through participation in the Olympic Summer Games and beyond – “from playground to podium”. It is based on the participant’s developmental (both physiological and mental) age, rather than chronological age.
Boxing Canada has adapted the conceptual LTAD to the development of athletes in our sport.
Boxing Canada LTAD has the following stages:
- Active Start
- Learn to Box
- Train to Box
- Train to Compete
- Train for Peak Performance
- Active for Life
Our Goal with the LTAD is to have a fully integrated system in place for our boxers to reach Olympic podium.
Our first step is to build and implement a boxing Long Term Athlete Development model.
