Transcript of BTEC Unit 23
Types of event:
Purpose of events
Eg. a league which is composed of many smaller events. ie. matches.
A shorter type of competitive sports event, eg. a knockout tournament lasting a day or two or mini-leagues over a weekend.
Often up to a week in duration and residential at specific sports venues.
Similar to to training camps, but aim is to achieve specific NGB coaching awards/ qualifications.
Useful for clubs to raise funds, with scale ranging from small and local to very large and national.
Schools and colleges regularly organise these for students to learn about a subject in a relevant location.
Outdoor education events:
These involve outdoor and adventurous activities, and are often residential.
A more serious outdoor event involving a 'journey with a purpose', where the group is self-sufficient and often travelling through relatively remote areas.
Eg. One-day conferences to raise awareness of the drugs in sport.
Eg. a clean-up campaign for a local sports venue; events can be made 'green' by encouraging sustainability, eg. promote low-carbon transport.
Eg: an exercise class to improve physical health, or over-60's bowling to encourage socialisation;
a taster event to boost personal skills and confidence in an activity.
To try to involve people who are not really engaged with society(excluded for some reason). Maybe those who do not have good access to sport facilities/ resources, or lack confidence or money to join a club. Thus events may be free or just 'tasters'.
Eg: A raffle or sponsored car wash to help keep a small voluntary-run sports club going;
A mass-participation event like the London Marathon
Focussed on the participants.
Eg: family orienteering/ school ski trip.
