Participation Opportunities for all members of the community to take part in a sport, whether for reasons of enjoyment, fitness, social contact or simply to get involved in the sport for its own sake. Performance Opportunities for those already participating to improve their performance from whatever base they start, where the desire to improve is the key factor for involvement. Excellence Opportunities for those with the interest and ability to achieve publicly measured levels of excellence.
