Psycho-Physiological Contributions of Physical Activity and Sportsfor Girls by Linda K Bunker( )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sport and physical activity contribute to the physical movement capabilities of girls, the health status of their bodies, the values and ethical behaviors they develop, and their personal development of a unique identity. This paper offers an overview of contributions and potential challenges related to physiological dimensions and psychosocial development. Childhood activities related to sport and physical activity should include opportunities for girls to develop fundamental skills and to acquire motor skills necessary for lifelong learning and leisure activities. Girls need reasonable levels of motor skill to participate in activities that facilitate good immune system functioning, build physical fitness, and maintain appropriate body weight. Exercise uniquely affects female reproductive functioning, menarche, and bone density. Girls' involvement in sports is largely impacted by the attitudes of parents and other role models. If parents support their involvement, then girls can benefit in many positive ways, including self-esteem, emotional well-being, and social competence. Recommendations include the following: (1) children should participate in regular physical activity and sports experiences; (2) children need opportunities for health-related fitness activities and skill building; (3) children need a wide range of activities; (4) excessive exercise and training should be carefully monitored; (5)moderate and regular physical activity can promote psychological and emotional wellbeing; (6) and both sexes need equal opportunities for a full range of physical fitness and sport activities.

Sport psychology : building a bright tomorrow by Linda K Bunker( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a need to provide practical applications of psychology to improve the quality of performance and the meaningfulness of participation in sports. The scientific and research-based foundations for sport psychology must be acknowledged and expanded. Sport psychologists should provide to coaches and athletes services that offer sound educational programs and coping skills, as well as a variety of therapeutic strategies. Problems involving athletes include: (1) Young athletes, to be a part of school life, must have the fundamental skills to be competitive academically as well as athletically; (2) Athletes competing in the "minor" sports often suffer from the same anxiety, fear, academic and personal stress faced by athletes participating in the "major" team sports; (3) The recruiting activities of coaches for college team sports can elicit traumatic reactions from young athletes; (4) The increased activity of women in competitive sports causes new stressors in the lives of girls; and (5) Coaches and officials, as well as young athletes, are increasingly subject to burnout.

Research and future directions for the study of motor skill acquisition and performance in aging populations by Robert J Rotella( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A critical look at two typical research designs is presented, the first study being an investigation of field dependence and reaction time in senior tennis players, and the second being an investigation of the concepts of locus of control and achievement motivation in highly successful male competitive tennis players age 65 and older. A critique of the first study indicates some neglect for determining the reasons for differences in performance. A cognitive functional approach is then presented which is intended to alleviate some of the problems of previous research. This approach emphasizes a careful evaluation of the individual's cognitions prior to, during, and following particular learning and performance situations, and attempts to determine which cognitions are contributing to or interfering with effective learning and maximum performance. References are included. (Ds)
