      Carter 2005 recommendations
      Introduction o the single system or sport
    • Over the past 20 years one of the constant themes in sport policy discussions has been the fragmentation, fractiousness and perceived ineffectiveness of organizations within the sport policy area.
      While much of government’s focus has been on the inadequacies of the national governing bodies of sport (NGBs) the main national agencies of government have also been subject to sustained criticism both by the major political parties and by NGBs
      Houlihan & Green 2009
    • Some NGBs are focussed primarily on participation,
      others focus mainly on elite performance;
      Some NGBs have few members and are grouped in quite distinct
      geographical areas of the UK
      others are ubiquitous throughout the UK;
      Some NGBs have a turnover of <£50,000 per annum
      Some £10,000,000+ per annum;
    • External Factors:
      Initiative-led rather than strategy-led funding;
      Over reliance on grant funding and limited reserves;
      Too many organisations setting strategy and not enough delivery;
      Limited performance measures; and
      Fragmented delivery of funding.
    • Internal Factors:
      Reticence of NGBs to invest in themselves;
      The struggle to recruit high quality staff;
      Too much time spent on firefighting;
      Difficulty in retaining and recruiting volunteers;
      Limited focus on member services;
      Ignoring basic business principles; and
      Poor corporate governance and financial mismanagement.
    • 1. Effective corporate governance;
      2. Sport & business administration;
      3. Financial management;
      4. Exploitation of commercial opportunities;
      5. Performance management;
      6. Talent ID/ development & elite performance;
      7. Coach education & development system;
      8. Services to members;
      9. Volunteer management;
      10. Event management;
      11. Partnerships with Local Authorities, Education and the commercial sector;
      12. Structure of Sport.
    • Sports Councils (Houlihan & Green 2009)
      Critics have accused the sports councils of being:
      Unresponsive to the needs of their clients;
      Overly bureaucratic and complex,
      Especially in relation to the accessing of funds;
      Incoherent due to overlapping responsibilities
      The lack of strategic clarity and the generation of an excess of, often short-term, initiatives

    • Began as National Coaching Foundation in 1983 as a sub-committee of the then (GB) Sports Council. It was formed to establish a comprehensive coach-education programme throughout the United Kingdom.
      In 1989 the (GB) Sports Council agreed to a proposal to establish the Foundation as a Charity governed by the Charities and Companies Acts.
      The Foundation was not permitted to undertake trading activity but was allowed to establish a wholly owned trading subsidiary. Coachwise Ltd
      In 2001 the National Coaching Foundation was rebranded as sports coach UK.
      The Coaching Task Force report of 2002 need to 'professionalise' coaching:
      Development of a UK Coaching Certificate
      The creation of 3000 Community Sports coach posts
      The establishment of a network of Coach Development Officers
      Greater research into all aspects of coaching

    • Sports Policy NEW Labour
      New Labour’s policy on sport development and physical activity policy begins with “social inclusion” at its heart.
      This “social inclusion” agenda was not limited to sport. ‘Bringing Britain Together - a National strategy for neighbourhood renewal’ (Cabinet Office 1997) some 18 working groups, called Policy Action Teams, were established in 1998 to develop a range of strategies in a variety of social areas directed at tackling social exclusion in British society, combating social exclusion therefore was designed as a ‘crosscutting’ political agenda.
      Sport and the Arts’ potential contribution was detailed in a report from the Policy Action Team 10 (Ten), commonly known as PAT 10.
    • Sports Policy NEW Labour
      The PAT 10 report made the claim that;
      “because of its wide popularity and inherent properties, sport can contribute to neighbourhood renewal by improving communities performance on four key indicators;
      employment and
      In essence and since 1998, PAT 10 has become the glue that binds sport development together.
    • Game Plan 2001
      Department for Culture Media and Sport - (DCMS) published an action plan in 2001 entitled called “The Government’s Plan for Sport”
      Reorganisation of the English Sports Council (Sport England) and a refocusing of its operation toward a strategic level
      Government required Sport England to become more strategic and to deliver government’s wider agenda of regional devolution.
      Regional Sports Boards
    • Wales Climbing Higher 2005
      'Climbing higher' sets out a clear, radical and inclusive vision for the future of sport and active recreation in Wales for the next twenty years.
      The essence of this strategy is to maximise the contribution that sport and active recreation can make to well-being in Wales across its many dimensions.
      Because sport and active recreation can contribute across all these dimensions, this integrated strategy has multiple, complementary objectives which span the key areas of health, economy, culture, society, environment and Wales on the world stage. The background and context to these key areas are discussed in this strategy
    • Local Authorities
      LAs are major deliverers of sport and leisure in the local community but, amidst the rise in education and other social priorities, sport has found itself lower down the priority list
      Facilities suffering from chronic under-investment−
      Co-ordinating facilities at the local level is a challenge: in some areas, there is over-supply and in other areas under-supply
    • Growing interest in sport over the last two decades has increased the visibility of those organisations responsible for its management and governance
      Delivering both business and sporting success within a transparent, complex and changing environment is a significant challenge for the administrators of sport in this country
      bureaucracy and multiplicity of sub-scale organisations can make the sector a ‘soft target’for media criticism, which then shapes public perception
      The flow of funds in sport appears complex −NGBs, key recipients of grant funding,
    • Carter 2005 Recommendations
      To improve the local delivery of sport and suggest the Government considers how it can support the co-ordination of public, private and voluntary sector
      Develop, communicate and embed a ‘single system’ for sport in the community from Government to grass-roots –by investing in clubs, coaches and volunteers, strengthening school-community links and integrating talent pathways for aspiring performers
      Consider ways that the Government can support the coordination of existing investment streams, both public and private; and whether or not there is a case for a National Infrastructure Fund in order to upgrade and extend the network of local and regional sports facilities
