How To Guide
Racquetball Canada’s How to Guide is a great resource for program organizers and sport leaders. We’ve included several sections with useful tips for those operating:
- drop in programs
- programs for women & girls
- programs for athletes with a disability
- school and community based programs offered in court facilities
- school and community based programs offered in facilities without courts
Check out the ideas we’ve provided for planning, marketing, managing logistics and registration. We’ve also provided some ideas for how to keep people coming back!
If your program or club has found a great way to deliver programs that we should include in our How To Guide, let us know!
Long Term Development
Children, youth and adults need to do the right things at the right time to develop in their sport or activity – whether they want to be hockey players, dancers, figure skaters or gymnasts. Long Term Development (LTD) describes the things athletes need to be doing at specific ages and stages.
Science, research and decades of experience all point to the same thing: kids and adults will get active, stay active, and even reach the greatest heights of sport achievement if they do the right things at the right times. This is the logic behind the Long Term Development Framework.
