What is LTPD & Rep?

LTDP refers to the U7 to U12 age groups and the Rep. is U13 and above. As LTPD is a new term introduced through to the Canadian Soccer Association's "Long Term Player Development" movement. For more information on Long Term Player Development please click here.

LTPD players have a primary focus on like their name implies, their "development". Their program is structured so they are able to receive training from certified volunteer Coaches to further hone their skills during a critical stage of their development during the fall/winter/spring. They then transition to playing in Durham Region's LTPD leagues and festivals. 

Rep. players have a primary focus on competition and "represent" the Club at tournaments and league play. Attention is now shifted to training and playing with the intention of winning and placing well in tournaments and in their league. They play within and outside of Durham Region.   

I have a child born in 2015. Is there any way I can get them involved in this program?

For children at the U7 level, the players can play up at the U8 level at the discretion of the Darlington Head Coach and LTPD Manager.

Development training  includes training sessions with Technical Staff and a 5 day summer camp. These take place October 2021 to March 2022 and a camp in the Summer of 2022. More information regarding the sessions is described towards the bottom of this page.

How is LTPD & Rep. structured?

  • U7 (Born 2015) are able to partake in the Club Development training which is the fall/winter/spring training and physical literacy sessions with Darlington. Players who would like to play up at the U8 level can request from the Club to be assessed to do so.
     
  • U8 to U12 (Born 2014 to 2010) players participate in the the fall/winter/spring training and physical literacy sessions with Darlington and then transition into Durham Region's Development outdoor league in the summer with a bonus week long camp in the summer.  
     
  • U13 to U14 (2009 & 2008) players transitioning from LTPD to the Rep.  will have Tactical Development training designed by the Technical Department. The training will be facilitated by the Club and a strong emphasis and understanding for the 11v11 game will be taught. Educational classroom sessions with analysis will also be utilized. 
     
  • U15+ (Born 2007 to 2004) players play in and outside of Durham Region for the outdoor season in the summer. Training is facilitated by our by Club certified volunteer Coaches & Team Officials. 

How is the Club Development/Tactical Development structured?

The Club Development & Tactical Development for the U7 to U12's and U13/U14's respectively starts early October 2021 to late April 2022. There are fall/winter/spring training sessions along with other sessions detailed below. Once completed, teams will transition into their Outdoor Season. After these sessions are completed they then transition into their league from June to August. Note if your son or daughter is also registered for the Indoor program the training times are schedule so they will not conflict with scheduled league play.
