SPORT ENGLAND: Start, Stay, Succeed

-START: increase participation in sport in order to improve the health of the nation, with a focus on priority groups.

-STAY: retain people in sport through an effective network of clubs, sports facilities, coaches, volunteers and competitive opportunities.

-SUCCEED: create opportunities for talented young performers to achieve success.

23 of 52


-Elite: this is where inidividuals reach sporting excellence. pyramid narrows as fewer people take part in this level. Governing bodies of sport are responsible for development at this level.

-Performance: during this stage young people start to concentrate on specific skills & develop talent in specific sports. Quality coaching is an essential part of player development at this level.

-Participation: this stage is where young people begin to participate reguarly in a specific activity for enjoyment. Sports club become important at this stage as they make the link to the next stage of development.

-Foundation: base of the pyramind. learning/experiencing basic sporting skills (multi sports sessions, primary PE lessons)

-A form of physical activity which maintains or improves health and/or physical fitness

6 performance enhancing drugs

-anabolic steroids

-beta blockers


-narcotic analgesics


-peptide hormones (eg. EPO)

31 of 52

Side effects of anabolic steroids

-high blood pressure

-liver disease

-increased risk of heart attacks and strokes

-infertility in women

32 of 52

What do anabolic steroids do?

-mimic the male hormone testosterone and promote bone an muscle growth

33 of 52

34 of 52

What do beta blockers do?

-control the heart rate and have a calming and relaxing effect

35 of 52

Side effects of beta blockers?

-nausea and diarrhoea



-insomnia and nightmares

36 of 52

37 of 52

what do DIURETICS do?

-elevate the rate of urine production

38 of 52

Side effect of diuretics??

-dehyrdation (which can cause dizziness,nausea, headaches and muscle cramps)

-long term effects such as kidney problems

39 of 52

What do narcotic analgesics do?

-reduce pain, allowing a performer to continue to participate despite having an injury

40 of 52


-loss of concentration

-loss of balance

-loss of coordination

-emotional effects (eg. hallucinations)

41 of 52

what do STIMULANTS do?

-effect the central nervous system (CNS), for example, increased mental and/or physical alertness

42 of 52

Side effects of STIMULANTS



-irregular heart beat

-increased heart rate

-high blood pressure


43 of 52


-cause other hormones to be released

-(EPO) increase the number of red blood cells, and therefore the amount of haemoglobin) allowing the body to carry extra oxygen (increased aerobic capacity) and quickly disperse waste products & lactic acid - making it ideal for long distance events.

-(HGH) increase muscle development

44 of 52

Side effects of ERYTHOPOIETIN (EPO)

-thickens the blood making it difficult for blood to pass through the small capillaries and thus increases the risk of heart attack or stroke

45 of 52

Ways to Balance Competition.

-weight categories

-age categories

-mixed or single gender

-handicap system

46 of 52

what is SYSTOLIC and DIASTOLIC blood pressure?

-SYSTOLIC BLOOD PRESSURE: maximum pressure in the arteries when the heart contracts and pushes blood through the aorta and into the body. Rises during activity as more blood is required by the body.

-DIASTOLIC BLOOD PRESSURE: pressure of the blood during the relaxation phase between heart beats (when the heart is at rest). It depends mainly on the elasticity of the arteries and quality of the vessels.

47 of 52


-the difference between systolic and diastolic blood pressure

48 of 52

Immediate effect of exercise on the body

-breathing becomes faster and deeper

-body temperature increases

-sweating starts (so body requires fluids)

-muscles begin to ache

49 of 52

Effects of REGULAR exercise on the CARDIOVASCULAR

-decreased resting heart rate

-increased heart recovery rate

-increased stroke volume

-reduced blood pressure

-more capillaries within the heart muscle

50 of 52

Factors that have a negative effect on the cardiov

-high cholesterol (which is caused by a diet high in animal fats)

-recreational drugs

-sedentary lifestyle and lack of exercise (hypokinetic disease)


51 of 52

Immediate & short-term effects of physical activit

-breathing quickens and deepens

-oxygen debt (the extra oxygen consumed after anaerobic activity to make up for the short fall)
