Long Term Player Development

Course Description

The LTPD sessions are invitation only.

The aim of Argyle’s LTPD programme, which is aligned with the objectives of the Football Association and part of the club’s youth development principles, is to identify players of excellent ability and place them in a technical and educational programme designed to develop football excellence, in tandem with personal development. Our primary objective is to create a relaxed learning environment in which players can develop at a pace that suits each individual child. The LTPD ethos aims to develop the fundamental skills of the individual, including technical, physical, mental and social elements. The programme focuses on the development of young players and retention of potential in all fields and, as a long-term club-target; we would like to see more local players progressing into our first-team squad.
