Transcript of Sports Participation Pyramid

explain the sports participation pyramid in regard to the foundation, participation, performance
and elite stages. The greater the number of people who become involved in sport through participating and volunteering, the more likely it is that some will achieve excellence. 1. Draw a pyramid and see if you can label and explain each stage.
2. Where do you think you are on the pyramid?
3. Write examples for each of the stages.
4. Do this again using the same sport. Sports Participation Pyramid Section 1.1:6 The Sports Participation Pyramid illustrates the development from mass participation at the bottom to excellence at the top.

School festivals, school/club links
Sports clubs become important at this stage as they make the link to the next stage of development. Performance: during this stage young people begin to concentrate on sport specific skills and to develop talent in specific sports.
Quality coaching is very important at this stage. Elite/Excellence: this stage is the peak of the pyramid, where individuals reach excellence.

Governing bodies of sport are responsible for development at this level as players pass from county to regional to national squads.
