A player pathway is the route that someone takes in order to represent their country, or which shows them the journey they need to go on to get to the level they want to participate at.
Disability sport often does not often have sport on a local level due to the number of people participating in that sport unless within an educational setting such as the School Games.
Disability sport has a number of interventions that non-disabled sport does not have they are as follows.
- CAAD (County Athlete Assessment Days) – These are days where schools, both mainstream and special, send their pupils with a Physical, Sensory or Sever Learning Disability to a day where they are assessed to see if they show talent. This is led by Ian Brown, Equality & Diversity Officer at Lincolnshire Sports Partnership.
- Talent Camps – Athletes are selected at the various events shown in the diagram by the National Governing Body of that Sport and are held in the County where they live or go to school. This is led by Ian Brown, Equality & Diversity Officer at Lincolnshire Sports Partnership.
- Change 4 Life clubs are based within secondary schools as after school clubs. For more information go to the Change 4 Life website.
- Multi-sports clubs are clubs that have a number of different sports / activities that they do and are not sports specific. For more information go to our club database.
