Athlete development requires an incredibly high standard of contemporary knowledge, science and technology. At Attack Sports, we aim to re-define athlete development by incorporating multi-sport training, physical literacy, professional hockey coaching and Sport For Life principles. Research suggests that athletes who cross-train tend to excel in their chosen sport at the elite level due to excellent body control, understanding of strategic and tactical principles and well-rounded strength. In addition, we provide shooting, skating and stick-handling development in our unique facility. This is the Attack Sports formula for developing competent, confident and knowledgeable athletes.
We utilize the Canadian Long Term Athlete Development Model (LTAD), which was recently renamed the Long Term Sport and Physical Activity Development Model, as the foundation for all of our programs. Through this model, we apply fundamental movement skills, physical growth and motor development theories, physical literacy and windows of trainability. This establishes the foundation for more complex movements and sport-specific skills.
Our early-age programs focus on increasing physical literacy and introducing and developing fundamental movement skills. As athletes move through to adolescence, multiple sports are introduced along with domains of fitness - agility, conditioning, mobility, quickness, speed and strength.
Once an athlete has established a solid foundation, sport-specific skills can be refined and domains of fitness can be pushed to the elite level.
At Attack Sports, we encourage and promote athletic development but more importantly, we want to emphasize physical activity for life.
