Through the work of a number of NASSS members, it is evident that what is largely driving decision-making and problem-solving in a multitude of sport contexts today, as well as what purports to represent innovation in sport, is the result of sport’s increasingly aggressive profit orientation and uncritical reliance on the sport sciences. For many individuals working in various capacities in sport, this condition may not be what they thought they signed up for. Rather, what they believed they were signing up for was participation in an activity that values above all else the human desire for self-expression and the pleasure that arises from improvement and challenging one’s limits in healthy and appropriate ways. This session is intended to explore the tensions individuals engaged in one way or another in sport today experience when faced with this contradiction and the actions they have taken in response.
