Transcript of The sports development continuum

The sports development continuum A model that shows the different levels at which people can develop their sporting skills.
There are four levels in the SD continuum.
Aimed at young participants such as primary school children or complete beginners in an activity.
They tend to provide basic skills education such as catching or throwing and simple rules.
Gaining key movement and coordination skills, learning the basics of the game safely.
Emphasis on “fun” so that youngsters enjoy their session and continue the activity.
Making friends
Mainly found in school-age sports schemes, teams and clubs.
Sport England’s strategy includes an active schools scheme, which focuses on this level.
Less easy to define, with many different participants of all ages and types, and with many schemes.
Schemes tend to focus on community participation by trying to get people to take part more regularly.
Especially those who do not take regular exercise or play sport at all.
This level is illustrated by the active communities scheme in Sport England’s model. These schemes tend to be delivered by local authorities.
Task: Identify active community programmes in the Blackburn area, which groups of people make up the participants?
Attendance usually helps with skills and the athlete’s knowledge of their sport, as well as nurturing talented players.
An example would be a county scheme that helps to identify players who can gain representative honours and possibly move on to the excellence level.
This level in the continuum emphasises improvement through regular practice, competition or skills training.
A feature of this level would be the selection of participants to go on a course, take up a place at an academy or perhaps obtain sponsorship to practice.
Task: Sport development at performance level clearly involves many things other than simply participating, what do you think these are?
This is national and on the international level, which might involve preparation for competition at championship levels around the world.
From April 2006 UK sport took over the running of this for a range of sports at least through to the London Olympics 2012.
UK Sport has set out three new aspects of the world-class programme (WCP), the excellence level of the continuum that supports top athletes in their training and funding.
WCP Talent, which supports athletes who have the potential to progress through to the next two stages.
WCP Development, which supports athletes building up to the Podium level.
WCP Podium, which supports athletes with realistic medal potential Aimed mostly at youngsters in school or beginners
Aimed mostly at low participant groups in the community
Usually aimed at more talented performers
Focusing on top-class performers with medal prospects
WCP Talent, which supports athletes who have the potential to progress through to the next two stages.
WCP Development, which supports athletes building up to the Podium level.
WCP Podium, which supports athletes with realistic medal potential.
Choose a sport of your choice and describe the structure for each level of the sports development continuum.
Are there any schemes in your local area?

Foundation – what skills are to be taught? How will this be done?
Participation – Types of participants?
Facilities? How do they get involved?
Performance – How is talent identified? Resources? Development?
Excellence - How is the elite structured? Leagues? Competitions?
