Transcript of Access and Equity - Figueroa's Framework

Figueroa’s Framework is a tool used to investigate the issues surrounding access, equality and equity in sport and physical activity. It is split up into 5 separate levels; Individual, Interpersonal, Institutional, Structural and Cultural, starting off with ‘Big Picture’ of society (Cultural Level) and working down to the individual (Individual Level). Each level within the framework connect with the others to shape the overall joint effect. They show the different functions that reinforce, create, remove and eliminate barriers in sport and physical activity. The barriers cannot then be eliminated by simply acting on the individual level for example but instead, all the levels need to work cooperatively and effectively to overcome these barriers. Therefore, to increase the amount of students who participate in touch at Gilroy Santa Maria College, it will have to undergo a rigorous examination using the 5 levels of Figueroa’s Framework to find a solution for the sports coordinator to increase the numbers.
Cultural Level
The cultural level is concerned with shared assumptions, beliefs and values about issues such as gender or race and socioeconomic status and how these issues might affect access and equity to exercise, sport and physical activity

*Stereotype that touch is a male dominant sport, therefore females show less interest
