Non-Profit Sport

This chapter examines the role of the non-profit sector in sport development.

The reasons why the non-profit sector plays such a large part in the provision

of sport participation opportunities and the various ways the non-profit

sector is involved in sport are reviewed. The scope of the non-profit sector’s

involvement in sport around the world is examined, with a particular

emphasis on the role of volunteers in administration, officiating and

coaching and the role of non-profit sport organizations. The chapter also

provides a summary of the relationship between non-profit sport organiza-

tions and the State.
