Performance Pyramid
The performance pyramid is a diagram that represents the level of skill and the
amount of participants taking part at each level of skill.
As shown in the diagram there are 4 stages of progression. The 1st stage is the
lowest stage of ability. This is when people are first introduced into the sport
most commonly through PE lessons. Foundation level is the learning of basic
movement skills. The next level is participation, this is when people take on
sports that they have learned at foundation level into there spare time. Peoples
participation at this stage can be very different. People could play for a club
once a week or people could play football with their friends once a month. But
both of these levels of participation come under the Participation section of the
pyramid. It is only when the players level of skill improves to county level or a well
skilled club level when the player comes under performance level. Performance
level is obtained through regular training, coaching and high level of commitment
at club or regional level. Elite level is when a performer gets to National or
International level. Elite performers receive financial, administrative, medical
and other support.
