‘’The Sports Development filed entails three levels: First, on the micro-level, it deals with the study of the development of individual competencies with regard to movement.
Secondly, on the meso-level, it refers to the way in which community development can be facilitated through participation in sports and recreation and the establishment of facilities.
Thirdly on the macro-level, the possible positive impact of sports and recreation on society generally toward the enhancement of the quality of human life is studied.
