Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L)

The Canadian Sport for Life Program is a training pathway based on developmental age rather than chronological age.  As athletes progress through the 7 stages of LTAD (below), they will be given a solid foundation of physical, tactical and mental skills, upon which they will build their athletic abilities, establish an active lifestyle, and develop a love for the sport of synchronized swimming.
