Long-Term People Development (LTPD)

Long–Term People Development is a framework which has been developed with the intention of increasing overall participation in sport and physical activity. The framework takes into account individuals’ ability, through a multi-stage pathway guiding individuals’ journey through sport and physical activity from infancy to adulthood.

This framework has been developed from the Candian Sport 4 Life LTPD – Long-Term Player Development or LTAD - Long-Term Athlete Development but at JudoScotland we believe that it’s the people that become the players and it’s the people that are important.

Active Start

0-6 Years

Active Start

Although JudoScotland doesn’t have any specific programme designed for under 5’s we encourage active play as great preparation into an active lifestyle.

Active play is any form of regular physical activity that babies and children do, which includes moderate to vigorous bursts of high energy which raises their heart rate.
