CUSC Player Development

long term player development

Long Term Player Development (LTPD) is about putting the player first and offering age-appropriate opportunities for kids to enjoy the game of soccer. Making the game fun is key in teaching and coaching, so that players will continue in the game and may even coach or referee as they get older. 

LTPD is a program for soccer player development, training, competition, and recovery based on biological age (i.e. physical maturity) rather than chronological age. It is player centred, coach driven, and administration, sport science, and sponsor supported.  CUSC supports and adheres to this "best practice" framework used by Spain, England, Germany, and the most professional club academies around the world, who implement this philosophy for player development.
