One of the issues in community sports is the need to recruit and develop instructors, and the shortage of young instructors is becoming more acute every year. Despite the fact that enjoyment is a crucial factor in the continuation of volunteer activities and sports instruction as a “supporting sports”, few studies have examined the enjoyment of community sports as “suppoting sports”. The purpose of this study was to clarify the enjoyment of a university-run community sports classes program for children as a “supporting sport” by focusing on the perspectives of the university students who instructed the class. At the end of each of the university-run community sports classes, students who instructed the community sports classes were asked to provide comments regarding their enjoyment of the class. Category analysis of these descriptions was performed using the KJ Method, and terms extraction and co-occurrence network analysis was performed using KH Coder. As a result of categorizing the descriptions, it was assumed that the enjoyment of the university-run community sports classes as a “supporting sports” is that the implementation of the “program” generates “involvement” and “reaction”. It is believed that suggesting the enjoyment of “supporting sports” to university students, who have been involved in sports mainly as “playing sports,” will lead to the presentation of diverse involvement with sports and its appeal, and will contribute to the development of community sports.
