Manufacturer Description

Sport is frequently viewed as being divided into two separate domains: mass involvement and elite. In many nations, policy and financing in these two fields are handled by separate firms, and investment is frequently viewed as a choice between the two. Elite Sport and Sport-for-All explores the points of connection and sources of tension between elite and mass involvement sport. The book's multi-disciplinary and global line-up of factors looks for to specify, analyze, and develop options to this troublesome relationship.

Drawing on research and case studies from worldwide-- with examples from Denmark, Canada, South Africa and Israel-- the book explores key modern concerns consisting of:

  • does efficient talent recognition require depth of involvement?
  • do elite efficiencies inspire greater involvement?
  • the function of the Paralympic motion in mass involvement and elite sport;
  • and the financial elements of their co-existence.

The very first research of its kind, Elite Sport and Sport-for-All addresses a central dichotomy in sport policy and, as such, is essential reading for all students, scientists, policy-makers or administrators working in sport advancement and policy.
