Sport in the lives of young Australians
Sydney University Press
What does sport mean to young people in Australia? How does it affect their social, personal and moral development? What is the relationship between elite level 'media sport' and the games children play for fun and friendship?
Sport in the lives of young Australians offers an informative look into the practice of sport, the nature of children's and young people's experiences, and its significance for their development.
For anyone involved in youth sport - from coaches, teachers and parents, to researchers and policymakers - this book will provide invaluable understanding of the place and meaning of sport in the lives of young Australians.
