SSC Racing on Skates

Ratings: (0)|Views: 374 |Likes:
Speed Skating Canada (SSC) published Find Your Edge as acommitment to adopting the Long Term Participant AthleteDevelopment Model (LTPAD). A natural consequence of this commitment is the Competition and Event System Review and implies SSC fosters Developmentally Appropriate Programs.

The major challenge for every sport group will be to link programming to the best available growth and development information and requires reconsideration of all SSC programming aspects in light of the research information. While speed skating or racing on skateshas a rich tradition in Canada, the challenge is to use established knowledge rather than tradition to make program decisions. Developmentally Appropriate Program includes competition but as “a good servant not a poor master”.

Alberta Cancer BoardMost of the Team have participated as athletes, coaches and officials at every level from school speed skating to club races, to
Masters’
competitions and to the Olympics Games. They have a diverse and strong educations. Moreover, their careersrepresent a diverse mix of sport, government, education and business. The Team worked hard to understand the factualfoundation of the LTPAD, deliberated issues in light of this wealth of experience and expertise. The result is recommendationsthat are compatible with the theory and their collective experience.The Review Team was established by the Long Term Participant and Athlete Development Model Implementation WorkingGroup. For the work that the Review Team has completed, it operated under Terms of Reference that were established by theLTPAD Implementation Working Group. Throughout the process the Working Group provided and will continue to provide, aswe move forward, leadership, support and direction and it is to the Working Group that the Review Team reported. TheWorking Group consisted of Dennis Duggan, Co-Chair, Jim McClements, Co-Chair, Nancy Goplen, Yves Hamelin, and RobertDubreuil.Integral to the work of both the Working Group and the Review Team was the leadership, support and aid of two SSCprofessional staff, Brian Rahill and Douglas Duncan. They were full participants in the process. Their contribution to the workof the Review Team and the completion of the Review Team Report was invaluable. They both deserve our thanks.The Review Team was also
very fortunate to have the support of two of the world’s
leading experts in LTPAD: Istvan Bayli andRichard Way. In addition, to being sources of knowledge and inspiration, they played two other important roles. When theReview Team struggled with issues Istvan and Richard helped the Team to find solutions that acknowledged both the LTPADModel and the unique aspects of speed skating. Finally, when needed, they reinforced the creativity and boldness of theReview Team. Others to whom we owe a debt of gratitude for their advice, guidance and thoughts are: Tom Overend, BruceCraven, Robert Tremblay, Paula McConvey and David Morrison.Finally, the Review Team were clearly supported by the President Marie-Claire Rouleau and the entire SSC Board of Directors,Jean R Dupré, Director General, SSC
’s
Standing Committees,
SSC’s
staff, its coaches and others who provided information andreviewed materials. This support came in the form of encouragement and direct financial support. It is clear that SSC iscommitted to developmentally appropriate programming. Without this support the Review Team could not have completedthis Review in a timely fashion.
