With this paper, I explore the need to study people who take part in sports holistically and inclusively. A critique of uncritical “scientism” is developed, illustrated by examples of distorted use of sports science and abusive sporting practice, especially as they relate to women and girls. The need to balance performance discourse with ideologies of sport as a liberatory and humane activity is argued. Holistic approaches to establishing a common scientific pedagogy for women working in physical education and sports science are recommended.
