Opportunities for getting involved in sport Lesson 3
Today our lesson objectives are: All students will be able to explain opportunities to become involved in physical activity. Most students will be able to include opportunities for volunteers, leaders and officials and describe some of the initiatives to increase participation in sport. A few students will give clear links between all of the different initiatives and their role in increasing participation for performers, volunteers, leaders and officials.
Starter Get your homework out – discuss with the person next to you the opportunities to take part in sport locally.
Opportunities in School Class Discussion – What opportunities are there for you in school to take part in physical activity? What about in a coaching or officiating role?

Can anybody think of how you might categorise athletes dependent on their ability? The sports Participation Pyramid illustrates the development from mass participation at the base to excellence at the top. The 4 parts to the pyramid are as follows: FOUNDATION, PARTICIPATION, PERFORMANCE, EXCELLENCE.
PERFORMANCE PYRAMID Complete your “Performance Pyramid” by filling in the gaps.
Excellence/Elite fewer people at this level Governing Bodies are responsible for the development at this levels as players pass from county to regional to national squads. Performance Young people start to concentrate on sport specific skills and develop a talent in a specific sport. Quality coaching is essential to the development at this level.
Participation Young people participate regularly in a specific activity for enjoyment Sports development contribute to this with after school coaching, school festivals, club-links etc. Sports clubs begin to become important at this stage as the make the link to the next stage. Foundation Where learning/experiencing basic sporting skills. Primary PE lessons, multi sport sessions, TOP Play activities are examples. The acquisition of good exercise/skill habits provides a basis for personal development and future participation in a chosen sport.
