No Accidental Champions describes some of the opportunities and challenges that face persons with permanent disabilities in pursuing sport and physical activity.
Simple stage-based questions designed to allow NSOs to see where they are at in terms of their sport's LTAD.
This supplementary document outlines how the LTAD model applies to athletes with a disability (AWAD) and discusses additional factors to be considered when working with AWADs.
Athletes with a disability pass through the same stages of LTAD as their able bodied peers, and much of the training of their five S's - Strength, Stamina, Suppleness, Speed and Skill is similar to that of other athletes.
