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 2013. 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 2019 to March 2020 and a camp in the Summer of 2020. More information regarding the sessions is described towards the bottom of this page.
