AUSSIE SPORT--A Comprehensive Modified Sport Program for Children: An Evaluation.
Traill, Ron; Clough, Jim
This paper outlines the rationale for the development of several sports programs for Australia's children, their main features, and evidence of the extent to which they are achieving their goals. The programs include AUSSIE SPORT: Sport for Kids, a modified sports program for the senior grades of primary schools; Sportsfun, an after school program for primary school children conducted by secondary school students; and Sport It!, a 14-week skill development program for primary-age children conducted by their classroom teachers. Overall research into the efficacy of the sport programs indicates that they have been successful to a significant extent in achieving their goals. The evaluations have also indicated ways in which specific programs could be improved and have identified areas in which new programs or support for existing programs are desirable.
