Socialisation, Culture and the Foundations of Expertise in Elite Level Indigenous Australian Sportsmen
Light, Richard L.; Evans, John R.
Sport, Education and Society, v22 n7 p852-863 2017
This article reports on an ongoing study that investigates the development of expertise in rugby league and Australian football by Indigenous Australians as a socially and culturally situated process of learning. Focused on the sampling phase of the Development Model of Participation in Sport (6-12 years of age), it combines narrative inquiry and grounded theory methodologies to identify the important role that participation in a range of different sports and in informal games plays in the participants' development of expertise, as a process of socialisation.
