Abstract I argue in this paper that sport should be retained as an important part of the educational rationale for physical education. I consider Siedentop’s critique of physical education and his alternative in the form of Sport Education. Siedentop’s goals for youth sport and physical education and use of the work of Alisdair McIntyre are explored. It is argued that if we work to experience activities that are inherently pleasurable and intrinsically satisfying, then there is a possible future for activities such as sport. I conclude that school physical education is well placed to take up this challenge of sustaining sport as a moral practice and that the pedagogical tools already exist to do this in the form of a critical pedagogy.
