Sport is a billion-dollar industry and often the business side of sport seems to overshadow the athlete as a person. This session will explore a variety of issues that exist surrounding athlete development. Athlete development sees the athlete as a whole person and focuses on both the athletic and personal development of the athlete. This session invites papers that examine the athlete development process and the athlete experience. How can we use this research to create better experiences for the athlete? Topics presented in this session may include, but are not limited to, the sociological aspects of athlete development, athletic identify, transitions, academic support, social justice and activism, athlete wellbeing, character and leadership development, and career development. Papers submitted to this session should emphasize the athlete over profits and address implications for practitioners.
