  3. Why have an LTAD process? • 10 year or 10,000 hour rule (Ericsson & Charness, 1994 and Salmela et al.,1999) • This translates to slightly more than 3 hours of deliberate practice daily for 10 years

  4. A Sporting Future for All • To ensure that every member of our society is offered opportunity and encouragement to play, lead and manage sport. • This means opening up new possibilities - and improving existing ones - at all stages of life, in school, in local authority facilities, in clubs, in representative squads and in international competitions.

  5. Critical factors for Success of the Young person To achieve players potential: • Quality School provision / experience of sporting provision • Quality Learn community provision through Local Authorities and Clubs • Facilities which are: • Accessible (and at appropriate times) • Affordable • Quality and committed to servicing the needs of the athlete • Quality Teachers and Coaches who are appropriately qualified and committed to CPD • Appropriate levels of competition • A progressive structure of Rugby Development opportunities appropriate to age and stage of ability • A fully integrated talent identification programme

  10. Train to compete (age 14-18) • Individualised conditioning planned around growth spurt • Sport specific technical skills under competitive conditions • Advanced tactical preparations • Mental preparation & sport specific performance preparation
