PHYE 1037 SPORTS POLICY AND DEVELOPMENT
ASSIGNMENT – TERM 2, 2015
Critically examine how sport has been developed in this country by selecting and reviewing a named sport development project or initiative. Consider how it fits with the broader sport policy and development context, by examining the extent to which the project or initiative, and its goals and methods adopted, are aligned to contemporary sport policy.
You should select a current sport project or initiative. This can be to increase participation and activity levels in the general population, to develop grassroots sport, or to develop elite sport and performance; either at a local or national level. Your discussion should be able to demonstrate your understanding of sport policy and sport development and how the project or initiative selected fits with contemporary sport policy and policy goals.
Within your assignment, you should:
- Discuss the extent that the project/initiative is underpinned by theory and evidence.
- Critically review its objectives and examine approaches used to achieve and measure intended outcomes.
- Relate your project or initiative to contemporary sport policy, and evaluate it within the context of contemporary sport policy.
- Ensure your work has a title at the top of the page and all work is properly referenced.
