Reflection to identify an opportunity

Think about an opportunity where sport might make a valuable contribution. This opportunity could respond to a current problem where sport might provide a solution, or where sport could provide additional value to a community.

Using the workbook linked below, begin to capture these thoughts. Consider whether your opportunity could be addressed through either policy or programme design.


Activity

Spend around 5-10 minutes capturing your thoughts about the local context and need the activity is hoping to address, including:

  • what the current situation is
  • what change you would like to see
  • what brought this to your attention
  • demographic you are hoping to support
  • who will help you to implement your activity

This is only for your own reflection and will not be viewed by others. These can be notes, bullet points, full sentences, whatever works best for you. It doesn’t need to be fully articulated yet - this step is just to start you thinking about the impact you are hoping to make.

This workbook offers an opportunity to consider your situation, and the changes you would like to see as well as who will see the change, and who will help you with it. (pdf).
