Good sport environments: A study of collective fundamental values and their importance for activity principles in Swedish club sport

Abstract [en]

This study answers the call made by the Swedish government, the Swedish Sports Confederation (RF) and Swedish local authorities for research on success factors in Swedish club sport. By using RF ́s success concept and sport scholars critique in reverse as points of departure for our study we selected two “successful” sports clubs for a study of the constitution of good sport environments. Our theoretical starting point was that an organisation’s collective fundamental values contribute to shaping both its goals and its practice – and in extension to its potential to constitute a good sport environment. The results, which are based on eight qualitative interviews with key individuals, show how the clubs work with society-related dilemmas and sport-specific problems. By analysing elements in the club environments which have promoted this work we have been able to get an insight into the values on which these environments rest and their importance for building good sport environments.
