Active Stoughton for Life (AS4L)

One of the main goals of the Stoughton Parks and Recreation Department is to create healthy lifestyles. A proven way to create healthy lifestyles is through physical activity and sport. Active Stoughton for Life (AS4L) is a movement to improve physical activity and sport in Stoughton. AS4L uses a scientific model called the Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Model as its framework. LTAD was created by sports scientist Dr. Istvan Balyi. LTAD is a seven-stage training, competition, and recovery pathway guiding an individual’s experience in recreation and sport from infancy through adulthood. LTAD does away with early specialization until age 12 and eases into more competitiveness as they mature and children get older. Using LTAD will make physical activity and sports more enjoyable for the children, and assist them in becoming better athletes. This will also foster in children the continued desire to participate in sports that will lead to active and healthy lifestyles for the duration of their lives. LTAD is used by hundreds of national sport federations, and is currently being introduced in America through national sport associations such as USA Hockey. The American model is no longer used around the world as the best way to develop athletes.

Stoughton Parks & Recreation Guide Fall/Winter 2012 • 3

- Children should be exposed to a variety of sports and physical activities throughout the year

Stage 3 - Learning to Train (Males 9-12 & Females 8-11)

- M  ajor skill learning stage: all basic movement and sport skills (physical literacy) should be learned before the growth spurt - More time should be spent on training and practice than competing - Children being exposed to multiple sports and activities should continue

Stage 4 - Training to Train (Males 12-16 & Females 11-15)

- Major fitness development stage: endurance, strength, and speed - Continued approach of spending more time on training and practice than competing - Most important stage in determining the long-term potential of an athlete

Stage 5 - Training to Compete (Males 16-23 & Females 15-21) - Competition becomes serious - High intensity, high volume training

Stage 6 - Training to Win (Males 19+ & Females 21+)

Physical Literacy

- College and professional athletics

follows this direction:

- Minimum of 60 minutes moderate daily activity or 30 minutes of intense activity for adults - Adult recreational sport leagues, youth (ages 13+) recreational sport leagues, fitness classes, etc

Developing physical literacy is a building block approach that Stage 7 - Active for Life (Enter at Any Age)

Similar to the reasoning behind why children are taught to count when they begin school before they are taught addition and subtraction and why addition and subtraction is taught before calculus, the same rationale is behind developing physical literacy. Research shows that children need to learn how to do fundamental movements and sport skills before they can learn how to play a sport competently. For example, parents shouldn’t expect their child to be able to pitch in baseball if they don’t know how to balance. Children need to learn the ABC’s of physical literacy before moving on to fundamental sport skills and then sport specific techniques. The ABC’s of physical literacy are agility, balance, coordination, and speed. Once these basic fundamental movements are mastered children can then move on to learning fundamental sport skills. Fundamental sport skills are jumping, running, catching, throwing, kicking, swinging, hitting, etc. Learning these skills allow children to play multiple sports with ease. Not learning these skills can lead to a lifelong disconnect to sports and recreation. Once the fundamental sport skills are developed, children are then able to easily move on to sport specific skills. An example of a sport specific skill would be learning how to do a backhand in tennis. Research shows that learning a sport specific skill before a fundamental movement skill actually hurts performance ability later. Stages 1, 2, and 3 of LTAD develop physical literacy before puberty so children have the basic skills to be active for life.

Seven Stages of LTAD Stage 1 - Active Start (Males & Females 0-6)

- Children this age need to learn the ABC’s of movement - Children need to see that physical activity is a fun and exciting part of everyday life

Stage 2 - FUNdamentals (Males 6-9 & Females 6-8)

- Children should further develop fundamental movement skills including the ABC’s of movement
