Sport for Development (by Adam Goodwin)

Sport for Development

Sport Development 

As I posted last Sunday in a blog post called Development of Sport, sport development encompasses two major pillars: the development of sport (getting new participants and keeping current participants), and sport for development (e.g., using sport for social development).

Sport for development is very multi-disciplinary as an academic discipline. One will find sociologists, psychologists, and management researchers, among many other disciplines, examining sport for development programs, participants, among other topics.

Some Resources

I have been working on several papers that touch sport for development. I have included the articles’ authors, title, and journal. As well, the bullet point is linked to the journal online. Some of the links are connected to publicly available webpages; others, you need to pay to read the article (or your university has subscriptions to the journal).
