Sports Think Tank – What next for British Sport Policy?

Sports Think Tank – What next for British Sport Policy?:

‘Sport policy requires a radical, authoritative and comprehensive statement by the government that goes back to first principles to weigh up the value of sport to society; outlines realistic, deliverable targets in return for investment; sets out how sport should be deployed in the interests of wider goals such as combating crime and obesity; looks afresh at how to inspire children through school sport; and determines what administrative framework – incorporating delivery agencies, governing bodies and local authorities as well as Whitehall departments – can stitch together the bonds of school, community and elite sport.’ – a fine proposal from this interesting article on ‘What next for British Sport Policy?’ (Professor Kevin Jefferys).
