The L2T Centre will run from September through April with training once per week and will follow a curriculum to build the technical and physical competencies associated with these age groups.
Within the Canadian Soccer Association's Long Term Player Development Model, the stage of development within the ages of U8-U12 is referred to as the Learn to Train Stage. This new program is designed to match the needs of this stage.
As Highlanders and Wave coaches work to produce training which maximizes this training phase we will do so in tight consultation with members of CSA's work group Richard Way and Istvan Balyi who reside in Victoria, BC.
