A) LTDM: Long Term Developmental Model
CS4L for Coaches- Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L) is a movement to make sport better. Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) is the CS4L pathway to develop top-rank athletes and increase overall participation in sport and physical activity.
When you were a kid, what was your experience with sport? When you participated in P.E. classes, team sports, swimming lessons, or dance classes – was it fun? Did you learn skills? And did it make you want to keep playing? Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L) is a movement to make sport and physical activity better, so more Canadians will get quality training, more will continue participating, and more will reach the medals podium.
Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) is the CS4L pathway for developing top-rank athletes and increasing overall participation in sport and physical activity. It includes guidelines for training, competition and recovery based on principles of human development and maturation. LTAD considers the best interests of the athlete, not the goals of coaches or parents who might simply want to win at all costs. LTAD is built on sport science and best practices in coaching from around the world, and it follows 10 Key Factors that influence how athletes train and compete effectively. 
Coaches stand at the forefront of delivering programs that respect the principles and science of LTAD.

F) Sport Science      
Recharge and Replenish – Recovery Nutrition, By Kelly Anne Erdman, SNAC dietitian (bio)
Did you know that in a typical hard two-hour workout, you can use up all your stored carbohydrate energy (muscle and liver glycogen), sweat away over two litres of water (along with approximately 1600 mg of sodium), and break down a variety of different body cells including muscle and red blood cells? That’s why what you consume within the critical minutes after training or competing are the most important!  Without optimal recovery nutrition commencing within minutes after training, your body is likely to stay “broken down” and may not be fully recovered to train or compete to the maximum for the next 24 hours.
Why is proper timing so important?
Experts have determined that your body cells, especially those that store glycogen (energy), are most receptive to being replenished within the first 30 minutes after intense activity. Therefore, as soon as an athlete starts to “cool down” the recovery clock starts ticking!  Recovery nutrition can actually be broken down into two stages: stage 1 which occurs within 30 minutes after exercise, and stage 2 which lasts for 1 to 2 hours post exercise.

H) International Judo Federation
Judo Rewarded for its Efforts

This is what the Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee recognized today in St Petersburg on the sidelines of the SportAccord Convention, pushing judo forward in the grouping of Olympic sports.

The sports are in fact classified into categories that determine the distribution of Olympic revenues to the International Federations. Until now positioned at the end of the IOC classification, the IJF has entered into the third group, which represents an increase that was never achieved by international judo in the past.
"This is a milestone that rewards years of effort," said President Marius Vizer after the IOC's decision, before adding, "Our team has been fighting since 2007 for judo to be recognized for its educational dimension as well as for its sporting values. Today I wish to thank each judoka around the world because this significant increase in our status within the Olympic family is the result of everyone's work. I also would like to thank the National Federations, Continental Unions, all the organizing committees we are working with on the five continents to organize our events, our sponsors and partners and the media. I also want to extend my warmest thanks to the members of the IJF Executive Committee and to the IJF staff of our federation which has spared no effort."
Since 2007 and the election of Marius Vizer at the head of the IJF, judo has profoundly changed. From a sport that was considered as marginal a few years ago, it has now become a major player within the Olympic family.
Whereas before 2007, the IJF used to organize a World Championship every second year, the federation is now in charge of a World Judo Tour of more than 20 major events per year, which are broadcasted in more than 150 territories. On the occasion of the last Olympic Games in London, 137 countries participated in the Olympic judo tournament and more than 20 of them designated a judoka to be the flag bearer of their delegation during the opening and closing ceremonies of the Games.
"We still have work to do and that's what our team will continue to do," continued the president Vizer, "But today we can be proud of the work that has been undertaken so far and the results that have been obtained. The IOC's decision will have a positive financial impact on our federation and it will greatly increase our desire to progress for the benefit of judo and sport in general. "
