Abstract: I appreciate the opportunity to review and offer commentary on the articles in this special edition on sport development. The discussion of sport development as a scholarly and programmatic movement is a new and welcome discovery for me. Thus, this commentary reflects the views of an outsider in that I am not an active contributor to sport development. However, many of the scholars contributing to this feature, and to the larger discussion of sport development, raise issues that resonate with my own scholarly work. In that sense, I am not a complete outsider and emphasize connections and opportunities with sport development in this commentary.
