Examining Sports Development

by Mike Collins

Examining Sports Development Synopsis

Sports development takes place in continually evolving - and expanding - territory. If new policies are to be implemented effectively, it is vital to understand how development policy translates into the real world. Until now no single text has examined how sports development policies are implemented and experienced `at the coal face' of community and performance sport. As well as critical analysis of models and concepts in sports development, Examining Sports Development presents original case studies from practising sports development professionals working in a variety of areas, including: national and regional policy school sport talent identification and development sports club development coach development sport and social inclusion sports and crime prevention sports and health promotion. Sports development is evolving as a profession, especially in matters of education and training. This book encourages critical reflection, pointing the way to accountable policymaking and a long-term future for sports development professionals. It is essential reading for all students and practitioners working in sports development.
