A futurist approach to sport sociology



A futurist approach to sport sociology



Journal of Sport and Social Issues 4(1): 56-59



A futurist look into sport in the year 2050 provides a perspective on today's sport programmes for children, with its abuses and strengths highlighted. The development of the Youth Enhancement Programme of Physical Activities (YEPPA) by sport sociology classes is reviewed. Outlined is a hypothetical structure of society in the year 2000 followed by examples of strategies developed to meet the needs of the new society, avoiding the pitfalls of the former "win at all costs" society.
