dc.description.abstractThe purpose of my research was to a) examine the organizational and instructional features of the King City Skating Club (KCSC) that contribute to its ability to integrate persons with an accommodation into their figure skating programs and b) develop guidelines for other sport organizations that allow for full and meaningful integration of youth who require accommodations into their programming. I chose to undertake a case study of the KCSC. Data were collected via interviews and a focus group, and introspective field notes were taken within two hours of leaving the club or interview location to provide me with an ongoing internal audit trail. Data analysis involved the identification of salience and patterns as well as overarching thematics informed by Max van Manen’s phenomenological existential categories of body, space, time, and relation. Results indicated five considerations when examining meaningful inclusion in community sport: open and effective communication, education, sense of community, space and time, and having a focus on the participants’ needs. Recommendations for future research included a multiple case study design as well as a focus on specific health benefits.en_US
