Sport and Physical Education at Abdelmalek Essaâdi University: State of the Art

Soulaiman Harfouf

Abstract: This research deals with the issue of Physical Education (PE) and Sport at Abdelmalek Essaâdi University, Tetouan, Morrocco. It adopts a problem related to the diagnosis and development of the Physical Education/sport system in this Moroccan institution of public higher education. After verifying whether certain factors are responsible for the dysfunction of this system at the UAE, this study subsequently makes proposals that could contribute to improving its performance. The results of this study show that the PE/sport system in the UAE suffers from a more or less significant lack, in number and quality, of human, financial, material and infrastructural resources. On the other hand, a deficient and non-functional organization, the absence of management strategies, the omission of regular evaluation of the system, the low motivation and the lack of commitment of the administrative and associative actors mark the managerial approach of the sports sector in the majority of schools and faculties of the UAE. Consequently, we conclude that all of these elements are responsible for the dysfunctional situation that PE and sport are currently experiencing in the UAE. Also, the conclusions of this study reveal the way in which the leaders in this university represent the importance of sport activities among the educational, academic and para-academic offer. All of them are in favor of developing sports in their institutions, but without being really determined and equipped to make it happen.
