High Performance Disability Sport Coaching : Theory and Application (Paperback)
about this item
As the profile of disability sport has risen, so has the emphasis grown beyond participation to include the development of a high performance environment. This book is the first to take an in-depth look at the role of coaching and coaches in facilitating the professionalisation of disability sport, in raising performance standards, and as a vector for the implementation of significant political, socio-cultural and technological change. Using in-depth case studies of elite disability sport coaches from around the world, across a wide range of sports and disciplines, the book offers a framework for critical reflection on coaching practice and the reader’s own disability sport experiences.
