Sport Development



Year Two

20 Credits

The module builds on the Introduction to Sport Policy and Management module you successfully completed in Year 1. It focuses upon the sport development industry and the provision of opportunities, processes, systems and structures that enable and encourage people to take part in sport for recreation or to improve their performance, or to achieve wider social outcomes.  It will develop students’ knowledge and understanding of youth sport development, community sports development (social inclusion and health), mass participation and elite sport development and sporting events. By the end of the module students should occupy a sound understanding of both the national and international processes at work within sport development, as well as develop a critical knowledge of the various issues involved in both the development-of-sport, and sport-for-development.
