It is crucial that coaches respect the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) principles and apply them appropriately to Deaf and hard of hearing athletes. Coaches should begin by comparing the characteristics demonstrated by an athlete to developmental statistics instead of those based on assumptions of chronological age.
The expectations of a coaching requirement for Deaf Sports are linked to the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) standard as governed by the Coaching Association of Canada across all levels of the Canadian sport system.
