The purpose of this study was to examine the degree to which adolescent athletes' moral behaviour in sport is dependent on their perfectionistic orientation and their gender. Female (n = 123) and male (n = 132) adolescent club basketball players (Mage = 17.44 years, SD = 1.03) completed the Sport Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale-2 (Sport-MPS-2: Gotwals & Dunn, 2009) and the Prosocial and Antisocial Behaviour in Sport Scale (PABSS; Kavussanu & Boardley, 2009). Cluster analysis conducted upon ...

Background: Outcome expectations from Bandura's (1986) social-cognitive theory have been inconsistently conceptualized in the literature. The perceived likelihood of an outcome happening is one aspect, but the extent to which one values that outcome is also important. The relationship between the likelihood and desirability of an outcome to each other and to behavioural intentions and exercise behaviour is not well understood. Objectives: The purpose of this study was to examine the respective f...

Actions aid our ability to communicate. Actions that support communication range in complexity and the motor plan may incorporate information from multiple sensory stimuli. The present study sought to understand how individuals plan and execute movements related to communication. Potential targets were presented on a touchscreen monitor and occupied 2 degrees of visual angle. An auditory (animal sound) or visual (animal picture) cue was presented along with the two pictures of animals located 16...

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children (Cystic Fibrosis Canada, 2017). Advances in treatment have increased life expectancy. Children with CF are living longer into adulthood however, complications of CF can impede psychosocial skill development in youth (Grieve, et al., 2011). Sport has been identified as a context to promote Positive Youth Development (PYD; Fraser-Thomas et al., 2005). To date, no empirical studies have explored the complex ne...

The absence of visual feedback leads to inaccurate representations of one's self-produced force, through an "overcompensation" effect wherein central predictive mechanisms related to reafference result in self-generated forces being perceived as weaker than they are (Therrien et al., 2010; 2012; 2013). These findings hold significant safety implications in situations where repetitive force productions are a requirement of a work environment (e.g., assembly lines). Thus, the goal of this study wa...

Social support is associated with physical activity and quality of life among cancer survivors. However, it is conceptualized and operationalized in a variety of ways. This makes it challenging to understand how it contributes to exercise intervention outcomes. This systematic review examined the role of social support in physical activity and quality of life outcomes of cancer survivors participating in exercise interventions. Using PRISMA guidelines (Moher et al. 2009) we searched multiple dat...
Purpose: The current work looked to provide context or location-based information to objective measures of sedentary time in cardiac rehab (CR) patients. Methods: Accelerometry and GPS data was collected simultaneously in 50 patients attending a CR program in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Patients wore the devices for 9 days at the beginning (i.e., within the 1st 3 weeks), end (i.e., within the last 2 weeks) of CR and 3-months after program completion. Minute-by-minute sedentary time calculated from the...

Introduction. The dimensionality of the latent trait(s) underlying motor assessments is debated since the 1920s. Two hypothesis about the latent structure exist: (1) the General Motor Ability Hypothesis (Brace, 1927), (2) the Specificity of Motor Ability Hypothesis (Henry, 1968). Burton, and Rodgerson (2001) suggest an increased specificity with increasing age. This study aimed at examining this hypothesis by analyzing a possible decrease in the relationship between motor competence (MC) and phy...

The social context of youth sport can shape motivational experiences such as athlete burnout and engagement (Coakley, 1992; Udry, Gould, Bridges, & Tuffey, 1997). Social support is commonly linked to these experiences, yet sport involves a broader set of social behaviors that requires examination (DeFreese & Smith, 2014). Therefore, the purpose of this study was to explore several teammate-based social behaviors as predictors of burnout and engagement in adolescent athletes. Participants (N = 92...

Sedentary behavior has increased significantly over the past 25 years and has been associated with declines in overall health. In addition, research has shown that post-secondary students are reporting higher levels of stress as compared to students from previous decades. In response to increasing concerns of student health, post-secondary institutions from across the globe developed and endorsed the Okanagan Charter, an international charter for health promoting universities and colleges. This ...
