Resources needed for this level to analyse performances is equipment, videa cameras will be needed to look back on performance to identify strengths and weaknesses therefore this performance level is inexpensive. Time is also a resource required to analyse as at this level the participants are going too have less time compared to elite level as at elite level it is their job.
Their are also two other levels above foundation level which are performance and participation. Participation is usually at county level and competitions are usually regular at this level for example, county football matches on a sunday afternoon with weekday training sessions.
