Coaching Children: Sports Science Essentials is the first book in Australia specifically aimed at helping community coaches and fitness professionals design safe and effective training programs for children. As obesity rates soar and levels of physical activity decline, this timely resource provides guidance for enhancing children's engagement in sport, developing their motor skills and managing performance anxiety. It provides straightforward research-based advice on nutrition and explains in clear terms how to tailor exercise to address children's social, physical and psychological needs. A quick-find resource with application to both individual and team activities, Coaching Children presents technical information in a highly practical and reader-friendly manner. Everyday questions and answers include: 1. At what age should children specialise in a particular sport? 2. Do sports drinks enhance children's performance? 3. Should children do weight training? 4. How often should children train? Focusing on effective communication strategies with both children and their parents, each chapter includes a list of insightful reflective questions. Coaches are encouraged to apply scientific knowledge to motivate children in all aspects of training and competing in sport.

Introduction to Sport Marketing is an accessible and engaging introduction to key concepts and best practice in sport marketing. Aimed at students with little or no prior knowledge of marketing, the book outlines a step-by-step framework for effective sport marketing, from conducting market analysis and developing a strategy, through to detailed planning and implementation. The book has a wider scope than other sport marketing textbooks, recognising that students are just as likely to have to employ their marketing skills in community sport or the not-for-profit sector as in professional sport, and therefore represents the most realistic and useful sport marketing text currently available. Now in a fully revised and updated second edition, the book has expanded coverage of digital and social media, product innovation, services and relationship marketing, and key contemporary issues such as social responsibility and sustainability. It features a much wider range of international cases and examples, covering North America, Europe, and the vibrant and rapidly developing sport markets in Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Latin America. Every chapter includes a range of useful features to help the reader to engage with fundamental principles and applied practice, such as problem-solving exercises and review questions. Introduction to Sport Marketing is an essential textbook for any degree-level sport marketing course.
