HLST_LogoThe continued growth in the provision of sports development programmes at foundation degree, undergraduate and master’s level is testament to the contribution made by the subject area in developing critically reflective problem solvers who are prepared for employment in the diverse field of Sports Development. Many Sports Studies degrees offer modules in Sports Development. Over the last few years there has been a healthy growth in the number of academic texts and journals in the subject area.

What follows is an annotated bibliography listing some examples of key texts and learning resources that may prove useful to students and staff in HE.

Editor's comments - [  Sports development can mean different things to different people and is thus an ambiguous and contested term (Bramham and Hylton 2008). There have been and will continue to be many policy shifts in the sports development field. Many of the key texts and sources outlined in this document critique these policy developments.

A nice starting point for students to find solid and reliable resources for the study of sports development, from the Higher Education Academy.  ]  Reference this?Cryer, J. (Year). This page title in italics. Retrieved date, from <this page's full URL>
