dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to compare organized and non-organized sport activities of 41 Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) athletes from different birthplace sizes (n small city=18; n large city=23). A retrospective semi-structured interview was used to collect developmental sport activities of athletes. Results revealed that athletes born in small cities participated in significantly more non-organized sport activities and significantly less organized sport activities than athletes from large cities. No significant differences were found between the athletes when comparing total number of sport hours. Findings from this study provide evidence that varying developmental activities can lead to elite athlete development.en_US
