Long Term Player Development (LTPD) and Video

Long Term Player Development (LTPD) Program

This is an exciting time.  The philosophy behind the development of athletes has evolved and this evolution is being accepted and lauded by educators and sport governing bodies.  The Long Term Player Development (LTPD) program presents this new philosophy and we are proud to say that the Gloucester Dragons have embraced this new way of doing things!

We strongly encourage all coaches (as well as parents and players) to learn more about the principles of long-term player development and the promotion of active lifestyles.   To see the Ontario Soccer video, click here
