With the sociology of sport we are able to assume that a contribution as to why sports are favored is because it gives people the chance to fit in and form relationships Another reason why I think the sociology of sport is a good thing is that it brings up beliefs and ideologies, whether it challenging it or reinforcing it. It is ok for people to have different opinions on beliefs and ideologies as it is necessary for society to work. If everyone thought the same on a topic than there would not be different social worlds. An example of this is the gender ideology. Since the beginning, the male has been the dominant gender, which has given them more opportunities than women.
Social environment deals with the environment which an individual sees around themselves on acquiring consciousness in the society. Philosophers like Freud have accepted the fact that social environment is very much responsible for changing in human behavior and its personality. Also physiologist emphases that the personality of an individual develop with in a social environment the way a person socializes effects person moral ideas, attitude and interest in the considered a person social self. This is part of personality development and its effect by the area an individual chose to socialize or live.

Therefore, defining social construction as the way in which society and the world around something or someone moulds them and influences their thoughts and understanding of things and situations. Society has influence many of my views, leadership being one of them. I define leadership as someone taking the time to lead put others in front of their own needs and wants to influence the followers into accomplishing their own goals or the overall group goal with also getting and doing what’s best for everyone. Coaches, teachers, family members and leaders of community groups have all had a large impact on the way I view leadership. An example of this which has affect my views on leadership was my last and most recent coach.

I love Milan Kings definition of the body. "She believes our body is a container and expression of itself and object social control and the repository shifting race, gender, and factual categories". Our bodies should be valued and treated with care!
Culture is the building block for life. It sets society's standards, it sets our own standards, and everything we know is all because of our culture. Culture is a way of thinking, a way of behaving and learning. We express our opinions based upon our beliefs, and define ourselves by what aspects of our culture we choose to show.

Groups were also formed in the case study where it was found that Mary and brother’s formed two group and gathered allies, the superordinate goal could be for both groups to work towards finding a solution on care that is in the best interest of Ms Koulias. Whilst Realistic group conflict theory is a start to understanding this conflict , Social identity theory (SIT) that evolved from RGCT would provide a deeper understanding of the conflict. Tajfel defined social identity as "that part of an individual 's self-concept which derives from his membership of a social group (or groups), together with the value and emotional significance attached to this" (p. 63) SIT leans towards a cognitive approach of in-group bias.

‘’Sports provide a structured, organised world that satisfies some of our need of meaning’’ (Fulford 2006). From this statement we can see how sport plays a big role in society.

There are many theories too describe different behaviours and how each theory describes how different social factors affect us in society.
