Sport is not only limited to that of the practical, that is, physical activity, but also lends itself to theory. Higher education bridges the gap between practical and theory, and as such facilitates the need for the holistic development of athletes as well as practitioners in the field.
Education therefore, encourages individuals to engage in best practices in the dynamic and ever competitive environment of sport.
