The socialization of youth into sports and into sports-like activities has a long history in Western societies. The socialization process has involved parents, older siblings, peers, teachers, coaches, and elite athletes appearing in the mass media.
As a result, the sport world has become dominated by European and North American cultures. During the 19th and 20th centuries, these nations developed state-sponsored programs that focused on developing sports talent for the purpose of competing on the international stage.
In the modern period, however, global flows of people, technology, finance, images, and ideologies have altered the power balance between European and North American nations. While sports remain largely Western, Asian and African cultures are increasingly challenging the 19th-century masculine notions of content, meaning, control, organization, and ideology.
