Barriers in Sport
There are a variety of reasons why there might be barriers for you in your chosen sport such as looking after your children, working long hours or shifts. These 3 reasons can be very time consuming not leaving you with much time to yourself doing sport.
Looking after children is very demanding especially if they are of a young age where they need taking to and from school. Tidying up for them after you've come back from dropping them off, doing there washing and putting it away. Then any other jobs you may have to do in your home. After school you could put them in after school clubs but that's if you can afford too, so that maybe another barrier to your sport. Then after all that you've still got to go home and cook there dinner and put them to bed then after all that your too tired to do anything else.
Where people live
Where you live can cause problems depending on a sport you may want to get involved in. You may live in an area that doesn't have the facilities or resources you need for guidance for example you want to start football and you live in the middle of the countryside there may not be any clubs you can join whereas in the city you may find a variety or if you wanted to start sailing and you lived in the city there probably isn't a facility for that it may be out of town.
Disposable outcome is the amount of money you have left over after paying important bills, the money you can go and spend on something you want/ enjoy doing. The money you have left over could go towards a sport or activity down the gym but depending if you have children you still might not be able to do it, having money left over would probably go towards clothes, food and something that the children enjoy doing so adults may be stuck in a position where they don't get to do want they enjoy.
Facilities and Resources
Fitness and Ability
Either parent or individual you may work long hours or shifts. Working long hours can cause your body to fatigue especially as a parent. Most people work on weekends because its more money which decreases the chance on being able to participate in sport because most competitive clubs participate on the weekends.
Time to participate
Mobility- Access to transport
A main part is sport, is time; the amount of time you have to commit to it, it could depend how much you can progress as an individual. So if your work long hours, early mornings, late night shifts or have young children its going to prevent you from participating quite a bit or even all together.
Your cultural background may prevent you from participating in sport for example if your muslim you can only show your face and hands everything else must be covered up so if they wanted to start swimming they wouldn't be able to; understanding of british sport and if they can speak English. On the other hand you may just like to participate in sport for the social aspect just for a good laugh or catch up with friends.
Old people (over 50+) have more time to participate in sport but due to medical conditions cant play and they don't have that physical ability anymore whereas 16-24 year old's have time to play, because they have healthy young body's that have the ability to last 90 minutes of a football game, as where an over 50 would not.
Cost and Quality of Facility
Can that facility deliver your sport?
Before you decide to start anything you need to take a look at the facility and ask yourself is this good enough? You wouldn't want to sign up somewhere and be disappointed, also look at the cost of it, is it a reasonable price to pay for a venue or session and can you afford it.
If this is too expensive you may not be able to afford it and if the facility you want to use may not be beneficial to your needs.
Think about how you'll get to where you need to be, can you get there? how much will it cost? and how long will it take? if you can drive it will probably be a big advantage but you may not be able to afford to to keep filling up with petrol. Public transport, its fairly cheap but they may stop running at the time you need to go out, and there not always reliable as they can be late or not show up sometimes.
At your closest facility they have variety of sports and they don't have sessions of what you want to do? e.g you want to start tennis but they don't put it on, that prevents you from doing something you want to develop. If they don't deliver you should look for other facilities or resources within or around your area.
Having poor and inadequate facilities could reduce your chances of progressing in your sport which could hold you back.
For any sport you participate in you need to be motivated to get the best out of it, more motivation means the more you'll feel better about yourself and enjoy it more. A lack of motivation will stand between what you will be if you sit back and do nothing about it, and what you can become if you do something about the problem. to increase your motivation grab a friend and exercise regularly so you can both keep each other on your toes so theres no time for slacking.
Obesity arises from a lack of exercise which can lead to being overweight or obese. Being a couch potato is also a big NO too, to prevent this from happening all it take is 30 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise most days of the week, too burn extra calories, build muscle mass and boost your metabolism.
Obesity is a barrier because if you're subdued to be a couch potato you'll be reluctant to exercise and if your obese its very unlikely you'll be able to run.
Sports or a physical activity have been proven to relieve any stress or worries you may have. In the activity it can take your attention away from responsibilities you may have and concentrate on the game in hand, also the sweat that you release in exercising, carries mood-boosting hormones in the brain, called 'endorphins' that travel around in your system.
Stress can affect self confidence so this could prevent you from performing in sport by stopping you communicate and work with other players.
Injuries long or short term can effect your participation in sport. it can affect your bones, muscles, joints and connective tissues that hold them together- tendons and ligaments. if you can establish the cause of injury you can stop it from happening again but if you ignore it it can only get worse and could lead to all sort of things e.g ending up having an operation that you would never of needed if you stopped and used 'rest and recovery'.
Being obese can be very dangerous to your health and doctors say that if you're overweight as a child you're likely to be overweight as an adult. Obesity is linked all kinds of health problems such as; heart disease, cancer, strokes, high blood pressure and weak bones. to prevent it children are encouraged to take part in physical activity from a young age because it will reduce the risk of them becoming obese in their childhood. People that take part in any aerobic exercise is more likely to effected in losing weight.
