Since the sport education curriculum was introduced into New Zealand schools on a trial basis in 1991 many teachers have included it as part of the physical education programme. Although research to date supports the inclusion of the model as an effective way to improve student skill performance and educate students about sport, much of what we know is based on the views of teachers. However, it can be argued that our understanding of any new curriculum initiative can be enriched by considering the subjective experiences of those for whom it was developed. This paper reports on student experiences during their involvement in sport education.
