Pyramids of development
The “sporting” and “social” Pyramids of Development have been created to work in tandem as both are a mirror image of one another. Each of the pyramids levels take in to account the sporting and social needs before progressing to the next level.
Central and local government have introduced national strategies relating to many aspects of young people’s health and wellbeing. It is part of our mission statement to put these into practice at a local level, and we are now working on initiatives to address child obesity, oral health and anti-social behaviour. We are also involved with local employment and training opportunities.
Using the pyramids
The sporting and social pyramids of development have been created to work in tandem as both are a mirror image of one another and each level cross references pointing out the social needs as well as the sporting needs before progressing onto the next level.
