Abstract

Commonly referred to and used by wider social policy, youth sport organizations, and some practitioners in the field of sport/social intervention projects, the use of positive youth development (PYD) and an emphasis placed on developing relationships is supported by a relatively robust body of empirical and professional practice evidence. However, there is still room for frameworks and schemas to support the applied practice of community sport coaches and organisers, and the purpose of this paper is to outline the use of empowerment as a conceptual framework, with relevant application and design, within sport/social intervention projects. In order to do so, this paper reviews previous work related to the distinct context of community sport coaching, that specifically uses Jennings et al.’s [1] Critical Youth Empowerment (CYE) model to help explain findings, and signpost potential future practice.
