This subject examines sport and recreation organisations across the business, government, and community sectors. You will analyse the current contexts underpinning successful practice at state, national, and international levels and investigate the nature and characteristics of the challenges that sport and recreation organisations face within a dynamic contemporary environment. You will develop key skills to better understand sport and recreation organisations, key attributes of success, and engagement with potential participants and audiences.
In conjunction with the discipline theory, this subject introduces learning through practice by exposing you to authentic learning experiences. These experiences are placed at the centre of learning and assessment, so you have the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours necessary to respond to industry, community and/or global needs.

- a range of methods, tools, techniques and approaches to practice
- principles and perspectives such as values, ethics, empathy and leadership in real world scenarios
