Produced by the ASA Technical Swimming Committee, this document provides an explanation to help parents and club helpers understand the principles behind training and competition for young swimmers - although swimming, as a dynamic sport, will continue to change and develop, this will not alter the basic principles behind the long term development of young swimmers.
Editor's comments - [ More LTAD interpretation, different again, this time from Swimming; see our Ruff guide to Talent development , the authors of this document, whilst using the LTAD rhetoric, are about a million miles away from its (atheoretical) principles........ particularly in swimming practice. Whilst the science expressed is a little naive in places this document as a whole is an example of strategic rhetoric.... uses the right words - means different things - but sounds a bit like - Balyi's LTAD !, we find this quite amusing. ] Reference this?Cryer, J.
