Youth Multi-Sport is considered to be a transition point in athlete development. Athletes may choose to stay at this stage for an extended period of time before progressing to the next stage, which could be competitive programs in the community or ones to keep them Active for Life. The Youth Multi-Sport program (also called Learn to Train) has been developed to introduce athletes to a number of sports that they enjoy and for which they have a predisposition. The intent is to build a multi-skill foundation that will provide the athlete with options. The selection of 2 to 3 seasonal sports will keep the athlete active throughout the year, developing fitness and skills.
