Abstract

Though much has been written on sport education (SE) as it relates to more traditional invasion games such as basketball  rugby, and ultimate disc, little work has been carried out on its use with disability sport or children with disabilities in general. As such, the purpose of this project was to determine the effect sport education roles had on athletes with visual impairments and blindness during a 3-day goalball experience.  Findings suggest that both athletes and their coaches had a deeper understanding and more positive view of sport having participated in these roles.
