Lack of teams Due to a lack of coaches there are less disables teams available for disables people Travelling Travelling is a big issue for disables people. The majority of people don't have their own transport and aren't going to be able to walk far Lack of coaches Having a lack of coaches' means not as many disable people can participate in sport. Disabled people need more help and time put into them to help them achieve the results they require. Not as many coaches are willing to coach disabled people this is because they need more care meaning more responsibility is put onto the coach. Lack of teams There are only a minimum number of teams for disabled people to participate in. As there is a lack of coaches this leads to a lack of teams. If there aren't many local clubs for disabled people to play in then they are likely to find it harder to get involved within a sport.

Conclusion

Lack of coaches The lack of coaches affects the amount of teams that are available for people over 50. Lack of media attention With a lack of media attention people over 50 aren't participating in sport as much as they should. People over 50 aren't aware of the sporting opportunities that are available for them therefore participation levels are low. Health conditions As you get older you need to be more aware of health conditions that are likely to occur. Conditions such as arthritis and osteoporosis are bone diseases that occur as people become older. These are the types of diseases that stop people from playing sport. Lack of coaches Coaches need to be made aware that there is a more range of people that want to play sport. Specialised coaches should be trained to specifically work with people over 50 Lack of media attention Media need to make over 50's more aware of the sport that is available for them to participate in. They should also promote the benefits of continuing with sport at an older age. Health conditions People need to be more aware of the health conditions that can occur however they also need to be made aware that these conditions can be reduced by playing sport. ...read more.
