Physical Literacy Handbook

 


 

The OTA has compiled this Physical Literacy Handbook as a resource for a provincial coaching curriculum that ensures consistency in coach delivery across our community clubs, regions and academies while developing physical literacy through a stage-specific approach for players aged 5 to 12. 

It is our intention that through this resource, coaches will be able to create and implement programs that are developmentally appropriate by adhering to the guidelines of the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model for tennis.

It is encouraged that all programs and plans follow the coaching philosophy outlined in this resource as it will ensure that all participants are having fun while developing their tennis skills in a low stress, supportive, positive and safe environment.
