Research Focus on Education and Sport SIG 164
SIG Purpose

The Research Focus on Education and Sport Special Interest Group (SIG) provides a forum for the presentation, discussion, and encouragement of research and critical thought from diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives on issues pertaining to the intersections of education and sport.

A primary goal of the SIG is to advance and critique research on the interface of education and sport. We believe that the continual dialogue with a community of scholars will push the boundaries of thought on education and sport research.

The Research Focus on Education and Sport SIG is committed to actively promoting collaboration among critical educators, researchers, and leaders working in school, community, and higher education settings through networking and the creation of spaces for ongoing communication and the establishment of alliances and goals among our membership.
