This unit is designed to provide students with an introductory understanding of the organisations involved in delivering sport to participants. In particular, students will examine why sport and recreation are participated in and gain knowledge of the history of sport. Furthermore, students will examine and discuss how this has influenced the modern product that is presented; how the social movement of sport for all has impacted on sport participation demographics and statistics. Also considered are the stakeholders who are involved in the Australian sport landscape and contribute to the successful delivery of sport products; competition management considerations; and event planning.
