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 wellbeing, forming social relationships or
obtaining results in competition at all
levels’.
Council of Europe, European Sports Charter, (1993)
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)
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)
Further Definition
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)

Casey’s, (1988), Sports Development Model
Casey’s, (1988), Model
• Sports 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 level
Sports Development Continuum
Level
Description
Foundation
Encouraging young people into the exercise habit and
developing basic movement and sports skills (for example,
throwing, catching and hand–eye coordination) to provide a
foundation for personal development and future participation
in the sport of their choice.
Participation
Opportunities for all members of the community to take part in
a sport, whether for reasons of enjoyment, fitness, social
contact or simply to get involved in the sport for its own sake.
Performance
Opportunities for those already participating to improve their
performance from whatever base they start, where the desire
to improve is the key factor for involvement.
Excellence
Opportunities for those with the interest and ability to achieve
publicly measured levels of excellence.
