Routledge Focus on Sport Pedagogy


About the Series

The field of sport pedagogy (physical education and coaching) is united by the desire to improve the experiences of young people and adult participants. The Routledge Focus on Sport Pedagogy series presents small books on big topics in an effort to eradicate the boundaries that currently exist between young people, adult learners, coaches, teachers and academics, in schools, clubs and universities. Theoretically grounded but with a strong emphasis on practice, the series aims to open up important and useful new perspectives on teaching, coaching and learning in sport and physical education.
