Assignment 4 - Sports Development
Matt Parums Thank you for your attention! Comparison Initiative 2 - School Games School Sports Partnership School Sports Partnership P5 - Describe two different sports
development initiatives.
M4 - Compare and contrast two
different sports development
initiatives, identifying strengths
and areas for improvement.
D2 - Analyse two different
sports development
initiatives, offering realistic
recommendations for
improvement Positives
Government funding - Funding is provided by the government that help to put towards specialist equipment that can be used at sports collages. The addition of more facilities helps increase the numbers of people that get involved within sport.
Specialist Sports Collage - Specialist Sports Collages help attract big name sports athletes to help come and promote the collages which helps attract attention and more participants taking part in sport.
100million Invested - Plenty of money is invested into sports to help improve and gain new facilities. Negatives
Lack of funding for facilities - Although there is plenty of opportunities for funding, this money will often be spent on other things.
Plenty of extra responsibility - There is plenty of extra responsibility on the SSCO that helps run school partnerships with other schools. The SSCO within a school will have a teaching responsibility that is within the same level as other teachers, however they will have to organise and run events with other schools on top of this. This can add extra pressure on top of the SSCO as they would have more responsibility away from school.

Change in government in 2011 Initiative 1 - School Sports Partnership School Games Positives
Gets everyone involved - School games provides a massive opportunity for coaches to acquire jobs and provide chances for young children to get involved within sporting activity.
Competition - School games has helped to provide sporting opportunities to help promote competition. Competition happens as young athletes are picked to compete for their respective schools and compete against others in the forms of festivals and competitions. The promotion of competition is high as festivals can be local, however they can also be a whole country based festival.
Variety of Sports - Schools games provides a variety of sports that young participants can get involved with and then go on to take part in competitions. School Games Negatives
Less money invested - Due to the lacks of sponsorship that School Games gets compared to the Schools Sports Partnership scheme, there isn't too much money available to improve facilities and equipment etc. Most of the main money that is available goes to paying coaches to teach and lead the young children so therefore there isn't too much opportunity to gain profits.
Sport plans decreased - This negative also links and follows on from the lack of money that is available and invested as the chance to increase facilities or even produce a wider range of coaching venues is decreased.
Confidence levels - There is a massive responsibility on these young children to produce high level performances in big competitions, however with this amount of responsibility then failure can result in a massive decrease in confidence which for these youngsters can be heartbreaking. The School Sports Partnership Initiative is one work strand of the Government's newly formed P.E & Sport Strategy for Young People document that recently replaced the Physical Education, School Sport and Club links Strategy. School Sports Partnerships (SSP's) are families of secondary and primary schools that work together to enhance the quality of sporting opportunities, through the curriculum, Out of School Hours Learning, inter-school competitions and school to club links.
Based in UK - In sports specilist schools The School Games is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport.

The Games are made up of four levels of activity: competition in schools, between schools, at county/area level and a national finals event:

• Level 1 - sporting competition for all students in school through intra-school competition
• Level 2 - individuals and teams are selected to represent their schools in local inter-school competitions
• Level 3 – the county/area will stage multi-sport School Games festivals as a culmination of year-round school sport competition
• Level 4 – the Sainsbury's School Games finals: a national multi-sport event where the most talented young people in the UK will be selected to compete in our sporting venues (including the Olympic Park in 2012). The Games are designed to build on the magic of 2012 to enable every school and child to participate in competitive sport, including meaningful opportunities for disabled youngsters
Based in UK - Primary schools Both initiatives are well run and have a positive structure that will eventually have an impact on increasing the participation within sport as as well coaching opportunities.
The schools games did not receive any funding from the government or the lottery so therefore there isn't any available funds to improve facilities whereas the SSP does have these funds available.
The SSP scheme has evidence that suggests that this initiative has been a positive success whereas the school games don't seem to have any main aims or direction to the scheme. The School games has a higher focus on specifically creating a competitive atmosphere/situations, whereas in contrast to SSP where there aim is to get more young participants involved within sport.

On the other hand, both initiatives have positives, for example both initiatives are improved by the government, both of these aim to improve the importance of the level of PE that is taught within schools, the skill levels of these participants is aimed to be improved by the PE standards within schools. Both schemes help to encourage new participants to get involved within sport and to help get involved and to get active.
