Module Aims
What do you think constitutes 'sports development'
Sports development can be viewed as a form of social intervention comprising sets of principles, processes and practices that seek to provide opportunities designed to motivate and encourage people to take part in sport and physical activity at all levels of ability, through all stages of the life cycle, for a variety of personal and societal rationales.
(Hylton and Bramham, 2008)
A combination of policy (vision for an end state), process of social change (benefits) and delivery (practicalities). (Girginov, 2009)

'Sports Development' is a contested and ambiguous term.

DCMS (2015) Sporting Future: a new strategy for an active nation.
The true spirit of sport? summer 2016
What other attributes of sport should we appreciate?
• Study the nature, scope, structure, historical evolution of and the policy context for sports development
• Examine sports development programmes in education, community and elite sport settings
• Recognise the importance of strategic planning and effective leadership in sports development to promote employee commitment, motivation and empowerment
• Appreciate the value of equality and diversity in sports development practice
• Understand the importance of key health and safety legislation, including issues such as risk assessment and safeguarding, to sports development
• Develop an appreciation of reflective practice and the importance of continuing professional development for sports development professionals

What are your best moments of our summer of sport?
Lines are 'blurred' and difficult to define against activities that are closely related (Houlihan and White, 2002)

Where does sport end and physical activity begin? eg. Does setting up a walking club count as sports development?
