3 Define Sports Development in one concise paragraph Student TaskDefine Sports Development in one concise paragraphTutor Guidance:This is a great opportunity to get the students into small groups and allow them four or five minutes to discuss what they think Sports Development is. The tutor may wish to conduct a mind mapping exercise or small group presentations to explore the various ideas of the students and record them for later use. Much of what comes out of this exercise will lead the tutor into the rest of the lesson, such as:Sports Development organisationsSports Development ActivitiesWhy Sports Development
4 Towards a Definition of Sports Development PROVISION OF MORE AND BETTER QUALITY OPPORTUNITIES FOR PEOPLE, IRRESPECTIVE OF AGE, GENDER OR LEVEL OF ABILITY/DISABILITY, TO ACCESS SPORT(EADY,1993)Tutor Guidance:Using this definition as a starting point the tutor may wish to start a discussion using examples provided by the students which includes who participants who sport and/or physical activity and extend this beyond the students to the students families, what type of sports / activities, how often, where and who provides the opportunity.
5 RANGE OF ORGANISATIONS INVOLVED POSITIVE CHANGE WOLFENDEN REPORT 1960 Towards a Definition of Sports DevelopmentBROAD TERMRANGE OF ORGANISATIONS INVOLVEDPOSITIVE CHANGEWOLFENDEN REPORT 1960Tutor Guidance:This slide provides an overview of where the next few lessons could possibly go, firstly, after allowing the students to explore the term and define Sports Development a number of definitions will be offered in order to try to further understand the term. The tutor will then begin to discuss the types of organisations that are involved in Sports Development, again, allowing the students to explore their involvement and the organisations they interact with. Positive Change can best be discussed as the Governments agenda at the time and the need to stimulate positive contributions by Britain's youth in the late 50’s and the work of youth workers. The Wolfenden Report, (1960), is a significant starting point in the evolution of sports development, it’s purpose, make-up and delivery.
6 Broad Definition of Sport: ‘Sport means all forms of physical activity which, through casual or organised participation, aim at expressing or improving physical fitness and mental well-being, forming social relationships or obtaining results in competition at all levels’.Council of Europe, European Sports Charter, (1993)Tutor Guidance:This definition provides a base from which the students can begin to explore Sports Development, the tutor may wish to focus on the students participation rates, levels and use this information to begin to paint a picture of Sports Development.
7 Definition of Sports Development “Sports development is a process by which interest and desire to take part in sport may be created in those who are currently indifferent to the message of sport; or by which those now not taking part but well disposed may be provided with appropriate opportunities to do so; or by which those currently taking part may be enabled to do so with meaningful frequency and greater satisfaction, thus enabling participants at all levels to achieve their full potential”.Sports Council, North West Region, (1990)Tutor Guidance:The tutor may wish to revisit the definitions produced by the students, (these could have been recorded on flipchart paper & placed on the classroom wall), and compare this formal definition of Sports Development with the definitions produced by the students.
8 (Collins, 1995) Further Definition: A process whereby effective opportunities, processes, systems and structures are set up to enable and encourage people in all or any particular groups and areas to take part in sport and recreation or to improve their performance to whatsoever level they desire(Collins, 1995)Tutor Guidance:The tutor may wish to revisit the definitions produced by the students, (these could have been recorded on flipchart paper & placed on the classroom wall), and further compare this second formal definition of Sports Development with the definitions produced by the students.
9 Further Definition (Sports Council, 1993) About ensuring the pathways and structures are in place to enable people to learn basic movement skills, participate in sports of their choice, develop their basic competence and performance, and reach levels of excellence.(Sports Council, 1993)Tutor Guidance:The tutor may wish to revisit the definitions produced by the students, (these could have been recorded on flipchart paper & placed on the classroom wall), and compare this formal definition of Sports Development with the definitions produced by the students.
10 Student TaskIn small groups discuss possible labels to describe different levels of sports involvement ?Tutor Guidance:The tutor may wish to first discuss Casey’s, (1988) model of sports participation and concept of the triangle model? As a practical investigation the tutor may wish to get the students in to groups dependent on their level of participation and highlight the differences at each level.
11 Casey’s, (1988), Sports Development Model Tutor Guidance:Having discussed the levels the tutor may wish to introduce this model and it’s accompanying theory, highlighting the traditional theory that Sports Development was progressive and smooth in transition.
12 Sports Development is a continuous process (hence, “continuum”) Casey’s, (1988), ModelSports Development is a continuous process (hence, “continuum”)People start (typically) at the bottom of the pyramid (“Foundation Level”)Participants progress their way up smoothly through the various stages until they find their own levelTutor Guidance:The tutor may wish to highlight the implications of Casey’s 1988 model and discuss with the students how they think this may have evolved over the last 23 years, points to consider could include:Re-entry into SportInjury or illnessChange of SportPoor school provision
13 Level Description Foundation Participation Performance Excellence Sports Development ContinuumLevelDescriptionFoundationEncouraging young people into the exercise habit anddeveloping basic movement and sports skills (for example,throwing, catching and hand–eye coordination) to provide afoundation for personal development and future participationin the sport of their choice.Participation Opportunities for all members of the community to take part ina sport, whether for reasons of enjoyment, fitness, socialcontact or simply to get involved in the sport for its own sake.PerformanceOpportunities for those already participating to improve theirperformance from whatever base they start, where the desireto improve is the key factor for involvement. ExcellenceOpportunities for those with the interest and ability to achievepublicly measured levels of excellence.Tutor Guidance:Tutors may wish to use these descriptors to further discuss the levels of participation reached by the students as well as provide practical examples, many of which are available on t he Tennis Foundation or British Tennis websites.
14 Modified Version of the Game Easy to Engage Fun Mini Tennis – Foundation LevelModified Version of the GameEasy to EngageFunOften Our First ExperienceThe ‘P.E Teacher’Tutor Guidance:This is a great opportunity to introduce the equipment used to play Mini Tennis to the students and if time and space allow have a game of Mini Tennis to encourage exploration of this fantastic game. The tutor may wish to provide commentary on our this game fits into the Sports Development Continuum, considering the bulleted points on the slide and asking the students if they had visiting coaches or ‘Tops Sport’ bags in their school. If there isn’t the space or the time to actually deliver a practical session here the tutor may wish to visit the Tennis Foundation website and show a small DVD clip of the game.

18 Produce your own Factsheet based on the information you find. Student Task:Using your Tennis Factsheets, Identify what you think Sport / Tennis Development is?Produce your own Factsheet based on the information you find.Tutor Guidance:This could be an in-class activity to summarize key information from the lesson or a self-study task for the students to complete before the next lesson. Tutors may wish to provide the students with access to the Factsheets via the Tennis Foundation website, ( or as download and printed hard copies of the information.
