In the contemporary society, sports are closely linked to larger issues such as health, fitness,
physical appearance, money, politics, and cultural values. This module draws on physical,
psychological and sociocultural knowledge and complements it with required practical and
experiential learning to provide students with a grounded appreciation of sports and related
issues. The module discusses basic principles in sports physiology and nutrition for the promotion
of physical and mental resilience/well-being. It also seeks to address issues related to the
development of sporting culture and policies in Singapore.
In addition, the module confronts controversial issues pertaining to the use of substances to improve performance and motivation to attain the desired body image. Finally, the module provides an evidence-based platform for the evaluation of contemporary sporting technology and aids, encouraging critical analysis and differentiation of commercially-driven gimmicks from truly efficacious sporting products..
