What others say about us

 Higher Education Academy

" The heart of the site is the document library where you can download 100’s of sports development documents both past and present spanning 45 years. The site has also provided some new short and accessible ‘Ruff guides’ for students, and staff introducing topic areas written by leading researchers.

This website is produced by an academic and is invaluable for students at all levels. The site provides a useful starting point for both, academics who already teach modules in sports development, as well as those new to the topic. There are useful links to a range of useful resources. The site has been totally rewritten and upgraded and has become the invaluable resource for all students studying Sports Development.

It is fast becoming the first place students and staff researching the subject area go for information. Excellent new ‘Ruff guides’ to the subject area have been provided."   June 2009
