Mr Graham Smith in his presentation at Maidan Summit 2011 talked about the foundation of sport provisions in colleges and universities. Sharing a model from EdgeHill University, he mentioned six main categories for a good course on physical education and sport sciences. These were sport and exercise sciences, sport development, sport studies, sport therapy, coach education and coaching science, and physical education and school sport. In the course of his presentation, Smith elaborated on these categories in light of the ones existing in India and other parts of the world.
He also mentioned that a certain passion about teaching physical education is extremely important in deciding whether it goes a long way or not. Encouraging fundamentals, Smith concluded by saying that physical education and sport sciences is where sport starts. Therefore, the vision of achieving a healthy, active population can be achieved through it. Thus, it is for people involved in sports that they have to challenge policy and graduate change. If we don’t do that, we let down sports, we let down change, he said.
