The environment surrounding the playing field needs to match expected standards with appropriate processes to protect youth. Learn about three key initiatives to protect the participant experience through three key themes in the rule of two; screening and education.

Competition is an important part of the sport experience. Finding the right competition experiences are critical to positive athlete and team development. This session will introduce the concept of meaningful competition and how sport leaders can examine their competition structures and formats through a meaningful competition lens.
The Athlete Development Matrix (ADM) provides a sport curriculum that will ideally lead to training processes that are intentionally designed to meet stage appropriate objectives. Assessment should provide evidence that athletes have improved in relation to identifiable objectives of LTAD and the ADM. This session will highlight meaningful competition as a vital form of assessment and evaluation of athlete outcomes, aligning competition with the sport curriculum (ADM) is a clear priority for LTAD.
