Each sporting association has understood the importance of creating a framework / pathway in developing their athletes. This is commonly know as a long-term athlete development programme (LTAD).

 Advance work in partnership with schools to develop their Long-term Athletic Development Framework.  The LTAD framework is a clear pathway to empower and support each athlete to achieve in all areas of their development. 

 Through a variety of mediums including seminars, testing/monitoring and via our app, our coaches provide your athletes with a superior balance of training and competing, reducing overtraining injuries, overuse and burnout; and most importantly for you, improve performance in their sport.



The benefits of a LTAD programme cannot be underestimated, as it is structured around each athlete, thus creating an athlete centred approach, which in turn allows each athlete to learn, develop and to succeed. We can help schools develop programme their LTAD, bringing it up to date with the latest research.


The three pillars of development are structured to allow each athlete to progress at their own rate. The success of developing each athlete is through the coaching and monitoring of their learning, and then progressing their programme to meet measurable outcomes. This both empowers each athlete and builds resilience in overcoming barriers to success.


To drive an athlete-centred approach, Advance Performance use our unique training app to prescribe exercises and drills, plus track and monitor each athlete’s effort level, fatigue rate and overall stress management. The app empowers each athlete through reflective practice, and opens up clear communication to their coaches. Whilst reducing the risk of injury, overtraining and chronic fatigue.
