ESS 3356 Principles of Sport Coaching

Research Interests


    • My research efforts focus on identifying ways in which parents and coaches behave at youth sport events, and understanding how these behaviors influence health and performance outcomes in children. I am also involved in international sport outreach efforts that focus on helping coaches transition from a narrow focus on talent-development and strategy-implementation, to a more comprehensive vision of coaching, which emphasizes personal growth and community development.
