The Biopsychosocial Framework is a framework that looks at the interconnection between sociological, biological and psychological elements in human development. These integrating factors will impact on athletes moving up and down the performance pathway. This is coupled with transitions (age groups and/or performance groups) and key life events meaning that athletes will experience ups and downs in their progress, often recognised as non-linearity in development.
Looking beyond technical, tactical, physical and mental development in the athletes and referencing these domains and transitions, will assist in planning the programmes to support athletes with different levels and types of support – recognising when natural dips occur and reducing their depth and duration.
Examples of how this is reflected within the weapons framework include:
