Many coaches have requested guidelines surrounding long-term athlete development for aspiring Endurance athletes, specifically in relation to how to progress from when they first become involved in athletics through to international success. To meet this need UKA created the Athlete Development Model for Endurance, which provided insight into how young athletes develop through puberty and the implications this has on training.
This document complements and builds upon the generic Athlete Development Model by taking the core principles and applying them to the Endurance event group. Using current knowledge surrounding athlete development and the underpinning principles of competency based progression and deliberate practice, it provides a suggested model of how training could be progressed to maximise senior success.
