The context for sports development are rapidly expanding, as are the diverse issues facing those involved. In this book, leading authorities in the discipline take a critical look at how those engaging in sports development are challenged with devising better and more effective ways of promoting interest, participation or performance in sport. More importantly those working in sports development must look closely at who has this responsibility, and the processes and practices by which positive outcomes can be achieved. The book covers the following areas:
* sports policy
* sports practice
* developing 'Sport for All?': addressing inequality and inclusion
* community sports development
* partnerships in sport
* sport and health
* resources for sport
* legal principles and issues
* working in sports development.
Sports Development: Policy, Process and Practice explores every context of policy and practice from the local voluntary sector to Central Government and the European Union. This book considers many aspects of good practice and will be an essential read for anybody wanting to prove themselves effective in this area. In addition, courses requiring a critical approach to sports development will find this an invaluable reference.
