The goal of this supplementary program is to work with club leaders and coaches to supplement current club training environments with the following few simple but crucial guiding principles and objectives:
1. To regroup the top players in order to encourage them to train with a heightened sense purpose and intensity, while maintaining a strong focus towards competitive and physical preparedness both on and off the court.
2.The program coaches will work in conjunction with personal coaches/parents to help optimize annual planning and management of these athletes to help meet the LTAD plan training and match guidelines. This includes an understanding of the competencies required to meet the highest standard on the LTAD pathway: Living as a Pro or Top 50 world rankings.
As BC strives to become a leading development province in Canada, it is important that all of our programs fall in alignment with the Long Term Athlete Development Plan. For the 2017/18 season, players wishing to take part in the program must be working to meet the minimum requirements as per LTAD. Program coaches will work in conjunction with personal coaches/parents to help optimize annual training plans and match guidelines.
The provincial training camps will be held over weekends between September and June. Each regrouping will consist of 2 full days of tennis, fitness training and/or sport psychology (2) and nutrition seminars (2). These camps are designed to augment the great work being done at TDC weekly program, ultimately having all partners working towards common priorities and objectives.
In addition to the camps, a select number of provincial program members will be provided with competitive travel opportunities.
