Participation in collegiate American football is physically demanding and may have long-term health implications, particularly in relation to cardiovascular and neurological health. National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III (DIII) football players are a relatively unstudied population, particularly in terms of their dietary habits and knowledge. The aim of the present study was to descriptively evaluate the dietary intake of DIII football players including a subset of linemen and assess the nutritional knowledge and sources of information of these athletes.


Factors That Increase Physical Activity In Youth Who Are Visually Impiared, Adam Dwyer 2017 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Factors That Increase Physical Activity In Youth Who Are Visually Impiared, Adam Dwyer

Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education Synthesis Projects

The purpose of this synthesis was to review the literature on factors that increase physical activity for youth who are visually impaired. The selected studies for this synthesis describe barriers and facilitators that influence physical activity levels in youth ages 7-19. As Kozub and Hyun-Kyoung Oh, (2004) noted, individuals with visual impairment have reported lower levels of physical activity in relation to their same age sighted peers. It is important to understand where this population loses its ground in being regularly and adequately physically active. Research indicates several factors that have been shown to increase physical activity in young people ...


The Impact Of Coaching Styles On The Motivation And Performance Of Athletes, Mike Marcone 2017 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

The Impact Of Coaching Styles On The Motivation And Performance Of Athletes, Mike Marcone

Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education Synthesis Projects

Abstract

Previous research has been conducted on the concept of coaching styles and their impact on the motivation and performance of athletes, with results suggesting that the impact can be extremely significant. Through the different styles of coaching, coaches impact the athletes with whom they associate in different ways, while also fulfilling or neglecting the athletes’ psychological needs. Through recent research, it has been suggested that coaches who exhibit the most autonomy supportive behaviors tend to fulfill the psychological needs of athletes, resulting in the development of self-determined forms of motivation. When autonomy is supported and athletes become self-determined in ...

Family Characteristics Associated With Parents' Knowledge And Beliefs Regarding Preschoolers' Physical Activity, Christina B. Zurbuchen, Cassandra Ayres, Emily Hill Guseman

Honors Theses AY 16/17

The obesity epidemic has been rising in magnitude for several decades and has spread its influence to include children of all ages. Much research has been done to examine the effect that physical activity (PA) has on an individual's weighty. The amount of PA that children participate in is mediated by various factors: high socioeconomic status, more green space, having a sibling, and parental support for PA are all associated with greater child PA. While all of these factors influence PA participation, their concurrent effect is unknown. A holistic perspective is imperative to the understanding of childhood PA, as ...

Effects Of Cumulative Concussions On High School And College Athletes And Concussion Prevention Strategies, Taylor Cooke 2017 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Effects Of Cumulative Concussions On High School And College Athletes And Concussion Prevention Strategies, Taylor Cooke

Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education Synthesis Projects

Concussions are a common injury that can occur at almost any time. There are many different causes of these injuries, but athletic participation is one of the most common. There are many different ways in which sustaining multiple concussions can have an impact on your overall health and well being not only immediately after the injury, but also moving well into the future. Although these injuries cannot be completely prevented in athletics, there are steps that we can take that can help to limit the number of these injuries in athletics.


The Relationship Of Anthropometric Ratios And Kinematic & Kinetic Measures Of The Hip In Recreational Male Athletes Performing The Back Squat, Jay C. Garrels 2017 Seton Hall University

The Relationship Of Anthropometric Ratios And Kinematic & Kinetic Measures Of The Hip In Recreational Male Athletes Performing The Back Squat, Jay C. Garrels

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

The back squat exercise is a popular resistance exercise that involves synchronous movement of the entire body to perform the movement properly . The two main focuses when considering engaging in the back squat exercise are the risks of injury and the enhancement of performance. There is little information and scant understanding on the way body proportionality impacts the risk of injury and performance. The present study investigated this issue by investigating if there was a relationship between anthropometric ratios and kinematic & kinetic outcomes from the left and right hip when experienced, male back squatters performed a single repetition at 80 ...
