SCQF Level 10 (Year 3 Undergraduate)
Sports Development is a process conceived and enacted in a particular set of social structures and sports networks. It takes place across a continuum stretching from the most basic introduction and participation level at one end, to international elite sports performance at the other. It is a process subject to policy shifts at both the national and local government level. It is provided and serviced by a variety of different agencies including those from the voluntary, commercial and public sectors. The term "sports development" is an all-embracing one which includes notions of community development, community recreation, sports-specific development and the development of sporting excellence.
