Unit 11 Physical Activity for Specific Groups

This unit is internally assessed and externally moderated by OCR.

Sport and physical activity isn’t just for those that are good at it. The benefits of participating in sport or physical activity can be huge, for some more than others. Unfortunately, sometimes it is those that would benefit from it most that are the hardest to get involved and engaged in participation.

​This unit will allow you to develop a knowledge and understanding of the different groups of individuals who would benefit physiologically, psychologically and sociologically from participating in physical activity and why these particular groups are targeted by initiatives. This knowledge and understanding will then support you in planning suitable physical activity sessions for the groups identified and the considerations that need to be taken into account for each of them.
