The Long-Term Athlete Development model: Physiological evidence and application
It is crucial that the LTAD model is seen as a “work in progress” and the challenge, particularly for paediatric exercise scientists, is to question, test, and revise the model.
The Youth Physical Development Model: A New Approach to Long-Term Athletic Development
The YOUTH PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT MODEL provides a logical and evidence-based approach to the systematic development of physical performance in young athletes.

National Strength and Conditioning Association Position Statement on Long-Term Athletic Development.
A list of 10 pillars of successful long-term athletic development are presented, which summarize the key recommendations detailed within the NSCA position statement.
Reliability and validity of field-based measures of leg stiffness and reactive strength index in youths
Assessment of the reliability of a mobile contact mat in measuring a range of stretch–shortening cycle parameters in young adolescents found it to offer a replicable assessment method for use with paediatric populations.
