7 We need to provide a foundation for…… Physical literacy & (school) sports activities for young people Life-long physical activity and a positive approach to physical activity High performance and competitive sports

8 Agility Balance C o-ordination Speed Running Jumping Throwing Hopping The ABCs Athletic Basics

9 LTPD Physical literacy Practice & competition: Structure & philosophy Coaching Facilities Scottish Sporting Infrastructure

11 Regional Sports Partnerships To provide a structure for key agencies to work together to deliver LTPD To clarify roles and responsibilities throughout the LTPD pathway To provide a means of connecting local and national plans for sport To coordinate resources that go into sport at a regional level To provide a structure for improving the delivery of Sport21

12 Developing Potential Sport Specific Development Coaching Volunteering Club Development Academies

13 Purpose of Academies To provide an opportunity for those with performance potential to access quality sports-specific coaching and support services to enable them to further develop towards National Standards.

14 “ The support services are the icing on the cake – they are sophisticated and make the final 5% difference. In some instances the cake hasn’t yet been properly baked. The athletes are only at 60% of their capacity.” Area manager contract reviews, p.29 “There is a need to support athletes aspiring to AIS programmes without compromising AIS focus” Area Institute of Sport Evaluation 2004, p.25

15 RJG monitoring report: Benefits to the players in terms of increased access to coaches within a specific context Funding not sustainable No National consistency in terms of ages of application, criteria and delivery mechanisms Rarely full integration in the planning between LA/SGB/AIS in terms of designing the RJG programme & application Need for A managed programme for athletes to progress through or be channeled back into sport (rather having acceptance of a high drop-out rate) Need for a system that has elements that are transferable between sports.
