Barriers in

Women at Participation
Women may not have enough money to pay for any sessions or even time to go to sessions. An effective way to go about this would be to make the sessions a reasonable price and offer free créche for their children to go to.
Transport could also be an issue if they do not know how to get there, or they dont own a car. Public transport information would be a good thing to advertise on leaflets, websites etc. so they will know where to go and how to get there.
Disabled people at Foundation
There is a lack of understanding on how to involve disabled people within a sport. This could be easily resolved by preparing teachers in schools on how to alter there lessons if needed for anyone with a disability. There are limited opportunities for disabled people to take part in sports and to compete as there are not many facilities adapted to disabled people. I think if more funding was available for disabled schools, centres etc. there would be much more opportunities for disabled people to participate in sports that they like and even progress through the continuum and compete in big events.
Black and minority ethnics at Excellence
In the early days of sports development, participation from ethinc minorities were very low, I think this was because there was not a lot of black people in the U.K. at the time. Racism has been used throughout the years and is still used today. There are lots of campaigns fighting to get rid of racism throughout the world and one of the most common campaigns is in football, 'Kick it out'. I recommend that more and more campaigns are made to get rid of racism in the U.K. and accross the world, the more and more campaigns there are, the more outnumbered racist people will be.
Women may feel a little uncomfortable around new people so may find it difficult to come to sessions or may not want to come atall. Stereotypically, women do not like male dominated sports and those who do, at a young age, usually feel embarrassed to admit it or go to any sessions because of their peer group. A small open day for each of the sessions will really help women to feel more comfortable around people in the session. Women's sexuality is often questioned when they play male dominated sports and some women may feel embarrassed about it, making them feel self conscious about what people think about them causing them to stop or not go to any sessions.
Some cultures do not allow women to take part in any physical activities. Cultures also do not allow women to show any parts of their body so if they were taking part in physical exercise, they would have to do it fully clothed which could be uncomfortable for them and may also be uncomfortable for other people taking part in the activity. Many people take an interest in sports because of role models, but some cultures do not have role models in sport, especially woman because they cannot take part in any activities.
There are limited opportunities and programmes for participation, training and competition because there isnt enough funding going into facilities to make it available for disabled people.
The prevalence rate of disability rises with age − around 1 in 20 children are disabled, compared to around 1 in 5 working age adults, and almost 1 in 2 people over state pension age. Lack of early experiences in sport (this varies between individuals and whether a disability is from birth or acquired later in life)
There are Limited accessible transportation. This would prevent them from getting to places for activities.
Some cultures will not allow mixed gender facilities making it difficult for people to take part in local gyms, leisure centres etc. Some culture will not allow people to were certain clothing to take part in sports e.g. Asian girls are not allowed to wear swimsuits, this would effect them if they were very talented at swimming but could not compete and acheive anything because of their culture. Islam promotes health and fitness for both men and women yet women are looked at as if they can't engage with any sports
