Sport and physical activity play import roles in Australian society. This course focuses on the development of knowledge and skills for the organisation, management and conduct of sporting and other activity programs. Opportunity is also provided to complete studies related to coaching, officiating and/or sports administration to provide for a wider range of skills and expertise.
This course also seeks to provide the opportunity to engage in a variety of physical activities and the opportunity to assist with organising and teaching activities and attend and participate in carnivals and other sporting events. Although the course is slightly geared towards school sports administration, the content and assessment is adaptable to students more interested in general sports administration and coaching in community and government sporting organisations.
To ensure for a more complete experience and provide the opportunity to specialise on a particular activity the course will require the completion of coaching, officiating, health and/or teaching requirements through a commitment of time outside course engagement expectations.
It is expected that through the experiences provided there will be an opportunity to become more knowledgeable about various physical activities, enjoy participating in these for the social and physical benefits and be able to apply some of the knowledge to personal and/or professional contexts.
Should enrolments not reach the minimum number required for on-campus study, students may be transferred to the WEB offering and advised of this change before semester commences.
