CCC Athlete Development Matrix
The Athlete Development Matrix is Cross Country Canada’s new coaching resource. It provides specific guidance on how to develop each performance factor at every stage of development and includes a vast array of program guidelines and benchmarks - an essential tool for coaches who aspire to run efficient, LTAD aligned programs.
Acknowledging that a lot more than training affects performances, the Matrix includes recommendations for additional considerations and factors such as the supporting role of parents, good coaching, balance with academics and/or part time work, financial considerations, accessible training facilities, equipment, etc. For the same reason, CCC’s competition model has been integrated with the Matrix for parents, coaches and club program directors to have a full picture of all the factors to consider when developing athletes.
