Posted by Editoress on 12/16/15

The International Sport for Life Society is excited to announce the biennial World Long-Term Athlete Development Symposium (WLTAD) will happen once again in 2016, at the Hilton Lac-Leamy in Gatineau, Quebec, on January 29th. The Symposium immediately follows the 2016 Canadian Sport for Life National Summit, which takes place January 26-28.

The WLTAD is designed to bring together sport, health, education and recreation experts to advance the knowledge, application and implementation of Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) and Sport for Life principles across the globe. Attendees will enjoy a full day's worth of presentations from international delegates and global Long-Term Athlete Development experts.

Learn how LTAD is integrated into coach development and swimming frameworks in the UK; understand the International Gymnastics Federation Age Group Development Program; hear about LTAD advances in Scotland; find out how the USA is developing athleticism in line with LTAD; gain insights into the challenges of cross-cultural implementation of LTAD in Botswana. These are just a few of the topics that will be presented.

WLTAD takes place from 8:30am to 3:30pm on January 29th. Registration is only $185 per person and includes coffee breaks, lunch, and multiple speaker sessions. Register for WLTAD and the CS4L National Summit through the Summit registration page Here.

Accommodation can be booked through the Summit room block at the Hilton Lac-Leamy. Special rates are available until December 28, 2015. The hotel sells out every year so don't delay!
