What is Sports Science?
Sports Science is a study of the relationship between sports and the human body with the interaction of various technologies. From cellular to a whole-body perspective, sports science explores how the healthy human body works during exercise and how sport and physical activity enhance health and performance.
What is LTAD?
The Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model is a framework for optimal training, competition, and recovery schedule for each stage of athletic development. The LTAD model will help develop a lifelong involvement of individuals in physical activity and sport participation as well as producing future athletes. At the early stages of development, it is imperative that sport development programs are designed around critical periods of accelerated adaptation to training. These periods of development represent the time when children are ready and able to develop fundamental sport skills and abilities such as running, jumping, and throwing. In addition, they are able to improve their speed, agility, and balance, which are related sports skills that will serve them well in track and field as well as in other sports.
