Sport Development

Climbing Escalade Canada (CEC) is committed to supporting the development of Sport Climbing in Canada. 

Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD)

CEC endorses the Sport For Life LTAD Framework, which states that children, youth, and adults need to do the right things at the right time to develop in their sport. Read more about the S4L LTAD Framework.

In 2018, CEC published the Sport Climbing LTAD Model.

“This document is a framework for the Sport Climbing community: coaches, officials, facility operators, and administrators, to guide development of programs for all athletes, in both recreational and competitive settings. The recommendations made in this document are the result of collaboration by Canada’s Sport Climbing experts, an initiative of CEC, Climbing Escalade Canada. CEC recognizes a need for greater continuity within the Sport Climbing community and the broader sport system to provide all of our athletes with an equal opportunity to achieve great results, whether in local events or at international levels. This is another giant step forward for Sport Climbing in our nation.”
