Minimum Competencies for Teaching Undergraduate Sport Philosophy Courses. Guidance Document
National Association for Sport and Physical Education
Although sport philosophy is considered to be a sub-discipline with its own unique body of knowledge, sport philosophy is more commonly offered as a single course rather than a degree program. Therefore, these guidelines are offered specifically for the teaching of a single course at the undergraduate level. In order to be effective, the course must consider the specific programs offered (e.g., pedagogy, wellness, sport science, sport management, and athletic training). Further, the proposed guidelines are primarily intended for those individuals who are charged with teaching a sport philosophy course without having an extensive background in sport philosophy. A list of suggested textbooks is included.
