“Education in Sport and Physical Activity – Future Directions and Global Perspectives”

ENSE Board Members Karen Petry & Johan de Jong published their latest book “Education in Sport and Physical Activity – Future Directions and Global Perspectives”.

The book examines education in sport coaching, sport management, PE teacher training, physical activity and health promotion, and the emerging discipline of outdoor studies, considering how trends such as globalisation, digitalisation, and privatisation are having a profound impact on education programs. 

Designed to invite self-reflection, to provoke debate and to open up new cross-disciplinary and international perspectives within sports organisations and higher education institutions, the book is designed for advanced students as well as researchers, teachers, and policy makers and includes contributions from several ENSE members.

A chapter entitled “The Challenge of Doing Coach Education and Development in the 21st Century: Past, Present, and Future Trends” was written by ICCE’s Sergio Lara-Bercial and John Bales.

It is a must-buy for everyone working in the field of sport education and is now available here.


The SCE is a formally established continental body for Europe of the International Council for Coaching Excellence.
