Pretty sure most sport and exercise science courses are at least moderately scientific, and involve experimental work and data analysis as well as doing scientific calculations for various things. They are courses in the science behind sports performance and exercise physiology after all. It might vary somewhat between unis but I think some of the more notable ones (e.g. Loughborough and I think Exeter) are reasonably scientific from what I understand.

If you want a Sports course that is less scientific then look at Coaching or Management courses or even Sports Journalism.

If you want to learn about the science do a sports science degree but if you are like me and want to do sports but not the science side I'd look at sports development or sports coaching.
