2016-17 Development and Performance Programs
Provincial Training Group 2016/17
The objective of the Provincial training Group program is to provide guidance in preparing U16/U18 athletes for success at the national level. The program will provide support in areas such as sport science, physical training and technical judo training. One of the outcomes of each of the age specific programs will be to provide a basis on which athletes are selected to National Championships, and specialized training opportunities. In alignment with Judo Canada and the Long Term Judoka Development Model our objective is two-fold
• Increase the quantity and quality of judo training
• Increase the physical readiness and training capacity of our athletes. By increasing physical readiness, these athletes will be capable of sustaining efforts in training at regional and national levels
Sport Futures Program 2016/17
One of the key initiatives of the NSPPI is to build the foundation for future performance. The Sport Futures program will target athletes in the U14 age group for this purpose.The program will provide access to technical training sessions with the provincial head coach, as well as access to sport science. The program will include a competition and training camp schedule integrated with the provincial training group program (U16/U18).

The training environment which exists in Atlantic Canada alone, does not meet the standards of quality that are needed to prepare athletes for successful transition to the National Training Centre program, and ultimately for performance at the international stage.

• To increase training capacity (physical and mental readiness) in order to prepare athletes for successful transition to the NTC program.
