Pathways to Excellence

pathway to excellence structureActive Barnsley has a comprehensive programme of support to help Barnsleys most talented young sportsmen and women reach their potential.

The first step to excellence will assess 10 and 11-year-olds for all-round sporting talent, examining characteristics including:

  • speed;
  • balance;
  • agility;
  • co-ordination;
  • and strength.

As athletes progress to county level they become eligible for athlete support packages.

Support for successful athletes comes in the form of signposting to National Governing Bodies and assistance to help athletes reach the peak of their sport.

The pyramid shows the integrated pathway to excellence and the link between community and elite sport that exists in Barnsley.
