The Sport and Active Communities Major gives attention to community sport, its relationship with elite and professional sport, and how it can be managed to optimise participant satisfaction, build sustainable communities, and deliver social utility. It also covers team-sport management, gym and exercise program administration, and community-based physical activity programming. The course thus enables graduates to enter a broad range of administrative, management, and professional-support positions in governing bodies, sport clubs, sport facilities, sport events, local government, and community welfare agencies.
