Applying Long-Term Athletic Development to Speed Training

As part of the release of my new book Speed Training for Hockey, I recently wrote a guest article for Mike Robertson’s website discussing how to apply long-term athletic development models to maximize speed development in youth athletes.

Read the article here: Long-Term Athletic Development Applications to Speed Training

In the article, I discuss:

  • How understanding LTAD models can help parents, coaches, and athletes understand the development process and know when to train specific qualities to maximize speed
  • Gender-specific ages where specific qualities develop at an accelerated rate
  • Specific changes to three primary systems within the body that drive improvements in performance
  • 3 training applications to help youth athletes maximize their speed development
