At Sporting Ethos, we use the Long Term Athlete (LTAD) Programme as a guiding principle for approaching the development of young athletes.
The LTAD programme was developed in Canada in the 2000s and most of the top sporting nations have devised their own LTAD programme specific to each sport.
At Sporting Ethos, we focus on building a strong foundation which can enable a young athlete to achieve High Performance at a later stage in their career. This foundation is built on 3 main pillars: Mental, Physical and Skill.
We focus on first two factors which include the following aspects:
• Overall Athletic Ability: Working on overall athletic ability as opposed to sport-specific ability at a young age is found to have a better impact on performance at the elite level.
• Good biomechanics, posture and exercise technique: It is important that the athlete learns the correct movement mechanics before they achieve skeletal maturity. This enables the athlete to make major strength and power gains at the next stage of their development.
• Inculcating the correct habits and processes: The best time to inculcate good scientific habits for athletes is at a young age where we help them learn the basics of hydration, warm-ups, cool-downs, nutrition as well as some of the mental habits during training.
• Physical Literacy: The athlete should be aware of his/her body and the consequences of training and exercises on their systems. We educate the athletes to identify, report and manage area of concern with respect to their physical fitness and enable them to become aware of such aspets.
Being a Professional athlete can be extremely demanding, both mentally and physically and you need a Support Team to help you tackle these demands in the best possible manner.
Our team at Sporting Ethos understands the challenges faced by professional athletes. Our High Performance Model enables us not only to tack individual aspects of your game but also goes a step ahead and provides you with the best tracking mechanisms which help in optimizing your performance.
Some of the salient features of our services for Professional athletes include:
• Dynamic Performance Planning based on training and competition calendar as well as current status of training load, recovery and psychological preparation.
• Hands-on Injury Management Programme to tackle small niggles and prevent them from flaring up into bigger injuries.
• Sport Psychology support: Constant access to our Sport Psychologist so that you can discuss your performance and progress even on the move.
• Recovery Tracking: Professional sport demands quick recovery in short periods of time. We follow the international standards of recovery monitoring on a daily basis of our professional athletes so that we can provide them regular feedback on areas which they need to focus upon to achieve adequate recovery.
• Access to Sponsors: We also provide interface to professional athletes with our brand partners and other associate organizations for sponsorship purposes.

I have been training in India for about 10 years now and there is no (other) place where I found they incorporate Sports Sciences with Sports. This is the only place where both have been incorporated and have helped me prepare better for England. It’s something which gave me an edge because there is no one else in India who is doing this training
Sporting Ethos has a great team of experts. Last year, I suffered a major injury and because of them I am back on court. What Sporting Ethos has offered, has not yet been offered by any other institution in this country
This is what Indian Sport needed very badly and now we have got it. It is a great boost for our country
I have been training with Sporting Ethos since they started. They have taken me to a better level to compete and towards my all-round development as an athlete. I won my second ITF title under them which has helped improve my ranking in the WTA circuit. I would like to thank them for all their support and wish them good luck
