Sport Development

The minor Sport Development looks at the world of sport development on a continuum of Sport for Development (addressing social challenges through sport in national and international context) and Development of Sport (getting more people to play more sport in national and international context). Aims for sport development are inclusion, empowering people and building communities through sustainable sport programmes.


At the end of the minor Sport Development, students:

- have knowledge of a variety of international sport development projects/programmes and why they are succesful or not

- have awareness of how to facilitate in sport development projects/programmes

- can transfer their own vision of sport development into their own project/programme start-up

- have practical experience in organizing and facilitating in the field of Sport Development
