Athlete learning in elite sport : a cultural framework / ed. by Natalie Barker-Ruchti

Barker-Ruchti, Natalie

Edité par Routledge. London - 2019

Elite athletes lead a particular way of life, which creates significant learning and shapes their selves. This is the first sociological-pedagogical text to conceptualise athlete learning in elite sport and across athletic careers. It outlines theories of learning and argues for a cultural perspective capturing contextual influence, temporal changes, individual dispositions and subjectivity. Presented in three parts, landscaping elite sport and theorising athlete learning; showcasing athletes’ learning in elite sport; and informing research and practice, the book features nine international, multi-contextual and multi-experience case studies of athlete careers, experiences, and learning across individual and team sports such as, boxing, rugby, basketball, hockey and gymnastics.
