This subject provides students with an in-depth examination of the management of elite athletes, their coaches and the relationships with key stakeholders. A particular focus will be on the global high-performance systems created to develop successful elite athletes. The subject will examine International and Australian high-performance sport systems, with emphasis on government investment, funding, performance outcomes, international sporting events and performance evaluation. It will examine the social, financial and political difficulties facing high-performance athletes (and organisations) and examine strategies to maximise success and minimise issues (injury, drop-out, cheating). The subject will examine current case studies of issues arising in high-performance sport. Some examples of case studies exploring contemporary issues in high-performance sport include doping, corruption, match-fixing, governance and athlete behaviour.
