U9-12 Junior Development

This stage of the LTPD model is Learning To Train and is also known as 'The Golden Age of Learning’. This stage introduces players to disciplined training and begins to develop understanding of principles of play alongside their skills practice.  Repetitions are important to develop technical excellence but creating a fun and challenging environment is still paramount to stimulate learning and promoting a love of the game.

Players want to learn imaginative skills so skill development is very important as players learn best by “seeing and doing.”  At this age players are placed into ability groups to maximize their training environment.  Every Player develops at their own pace and therefore movement is essential in creating a successful development program.
