Long-Term Athlete Development

The OVA is committed to Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) and its principles. LTAD enables athletes to experience training and competition programs that consider their biological and training ages and prepare them for a life in sport. The LTAD guidelines are the driving force behind our belief in and promotion of Volleyball for Life.
