Abstract: The author reviewed domestic and foreign researches on sport learning interest in recent 20 years and put forward future research directions. Sport learning interest related researches were mainly done in the following areas: 1)researches on the current situation of sport learning interest, researches on the classification, measurement tools and levels of sports learning interest; 2)researches on the functions of sport learning interest on learning effect; 3)researches on sport learning interest affecting factors. The author expected the following areas to become future research direc-tions: 1)researches on the perfection and standardization of sport learning interest measurement tools; 2)researches on sport learning interest occurring mechanism; 3)researches on the pattern of sport learning interest developing from static current state to dynamic exploration; 4)researches on comprehensive sport learning interest affecting factor mod-els developing from single factor models to multi-perspective and multidimensional models; 5)sport competition char-acteristics and physiological inadaptability have caused the complexity of student’ sports learning interest; researches on learning interest in sport and human body’s biological mechanism will go deeper constantly.
