  • 2018 Warrior Games
    • Authors: Ronald Davis
      Abstract: The United States Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, Colorado, welcomed over 300 athletes to the 2018 Warrior Games. Each branch of the United States military was represented along with warriors from the United Kingdom, the Australian Defense Force, and the Canadian Armed Forces. This Paralympic style competition featured competition in archery, cycling, track and field, shooting, powerlifting, sitting volleyball, and wheelchair basketball. Over 70 technology professionals helped bring the Warrior Games to those attending with live closed-circuit broadcasts to each of the major competition venues across the USAFA campus. More than 34,000 people attended the Opening Ceremonies in Falcon Stadium, capped off with performances by Kelly Clarkson and comedian Jon Stewart. Family was central to these Games, as attendance was free, and a special Expo area was dedicated for interaction with sport equipment, vendors for sport organizations, and other adapted sport activities (i.e., wheelchair rugby, wheelchair tennis for adults, youth, and children). The U.S. Air Force won the most gold medals with 70, followed by the U.S. Marine Corp with 44 and U.S. Navy with 41. There were over 475 total medals awarded across all U.S. military branches. The 2018 Warrior Games were competitor tough and family oriented; a quote from former NFL great Herschel Walker summed it up the best, “Family is key to these athletes’ success...we have to do more for these veterans…family must always be included.”Subscribe to Palaestra

  • Basketball as Psycho-Social Therapy for Adolescents in Psychiatric
           Hospitalization
    • Authors: Jerry Mittleman, Ayala Iuchtman, Uri Yatzker
      Abstract: The positive contribution of physical activity to physical and mental health is well known, and sport is among the forms of physical activity that are being increasingly utilized in the prevention and treatment of people with emotional disorders. The use of individual sports, such as martial arts, horseback riding, and outdoor adventure programs, are known for their therapeutic qualities of enhancing personal growth and facilitation of overcoming emotional obstacles. On the other hand, the potential of team sports to promote social skills in addition to individual growth has been relatively undeveloped. This paper presents a program that attempts to achieve therapeutic benefits from basketball in a structured, adolescent psychiatric inpatient, hospital setting.  Emotional, interpersonal, and behavioral problems often result in social stigma and self-distancing which retard the social development of adolescents with emotional difficulties. The condition of hospitalization can often exacerbate these limitations. Basketball can be an additional mode of treatment during hospitalization, and we will describe a program that uses specific aspects of the sport for improving nonverbal and verbal communication skills, social functioning and strengthening self-esteem. The conclusions are based upon interviews of the participants, the authors’ observations and anecdotal reports.Subscribe to Palaestra

  • Goalball Showdown: A Small-Sided Game
    • Authors: Justin A. Haegele, Will Wiegel
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper was to disseminate one option that can act as a small-sided game to teach goalball at a developmental level, called goalball showdown. Young novice athletes tend to demonstrate difficulties participating in full-sided goalball that can affect their overall engagement and effort during game play. This text provides an overview of goalball showdown, and explains how goalball showdown increases engagement and effort levels in youth and beginner athletes. This content can help inform coaches and physical educators of an alternative way to introduce and teach goalball to beginner athletes so they stay engaged and actively participate. Subscribe to Palaestra

  • The Effect of an Indoor Climbing Program on Improving Handgrip Strength
           and Traverse Speed of Children With and Without Autism Spectrum Disorder
    • Authors: Dimitrios Kokaridas, Ioanna Demerouti, Panagiota Margariti, Charalampos Krommidas
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of an indoor climbing program on handgrip strength and traverse speed of children with and without autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The sample consisted of six male children, nine years old, with and without ASD, all beginners in climbing, separated in two groups of three participants: (a) autism spectrum disorder and (b) able-bodied. All children completed the same climbing program for 12 weeks, at a frequency of two sessions per week, for 40 minutes each session. Handgrip strength and traverse speed were tested pre and post climbing program. Statistical analysis included Friedman non-parametric tests to examine differences between pre and post measures for total sample, ASD group, and non ASD group separately and Mann-Whitney non-parametric tests to examine pre and post differences on handgrip and traverse speed between the ASD and non ASD group. Results of this investigation revealed improvement for the two skills measured and may indicate climbing as a useful recreation tool to improve physical skills of children with and without ASD. Future research could implement similar approaches using larger samples of children with different levels of functioning and climbing experience.Subscribe to Palaestra

  • Participation of Athletes with Disabilities in a Running Race in Brazil:
           Development of Volunteer Program
    • Authors: Jalusa Andreia Storch, Maria Luíza Tanure Alves, Gabriela Simone Harnisch, Enrique Miluzzi Ortega, Justin A. Haegele, José Júlio Gavião de Almeida
      Abstract: The current study presents an experience report about the inclusion of people with disabilities in a road race event in Brazil. The participation of those athletes were structured through the development of a volunteer program, implemented in partnership between the event’s organizing committee and a university. Twenty-three selected volunteers participated in a training course. The training of volunteers to work on road races represents one possible avenue to better include athletes with disabilities in these events.Subscribe to Palaestra

  • Physical Activity Patterns in Students with Physical Disabilities in
           General Physical Education and Inclusive Recess Settings
    • Authors: Jennifer Houston, Hans van der Mars, Kent A. Lorenz
      Abstract: Children with physical disabilities are at a higher risk for sedentary living than their peers because of their physical limitations that then can lead to deterioration in physical functioning (Sit, McManus, McKenzie, & Lian, 2007). This deterioration then leads to more inactivity (Sit et al., 2007). Along with the typically discussed problems associated with inactivity, such as obesity and heart disease, those with disabilities are prone to secondary conditions such as chronic pain, extreme fatigue, weight and eating problems, muscle spasms, respiratory infections, falls or other injuries, mobility issues, asthma and social issues (e.g., Rimmer & Rowland, 2008; Rimmer, Yamaki, Davis, Wang & Vogel, 2011). According to McKenzie (2002), participation in moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) during class is highly dependent upon how physical education subject matter is delivered (i.e., lesson context) and the instructor delivering it (i.e., teacher behavior) (McKenzie, 2002). Therefore, the purpose of this study was to observe and measure the physical activity (PA) levels of children with physical disabilities in inclusive physical education and recess settings.  The results indicate that students with physical disabilities are engaged in MVPA for an average of 10.25% of the inclusive physical education class time, and 17.5% during inclusive recess.Subscribe to Palaestra

  • Barriers and Facilitators of Physical Activity Participation Among Youth
           with Visual and Hearing Impairments in Nigeria: A Qualitative Study
    • Authors: Ogu Okey Charles, Nwosu Kingsley Chinaza
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the various barriers and facilitators allied with participation in physical activity programs among youth with visual and hearing impartments. The research sites included Vocational School for Visually Impaired, Remedial Class Special Education Center for Visually Impaired, School for the hearing impaired and service providers in the three schools located in Oji River in Nigeria.  Focus groups were conducted in the three schools with: 1)  Vocational School for Visually Impaired (4; 2 males and 2 females, Age: 20yrs-25yrs).  2) Remedial Class Special Education Center for Visually Impaired (8; 4 males and 4 females, Age: 16 yrs-25yrs). 3) School for the hearing Impaired (Junior Class = 5; 3 boys and 2 girls, Age: 12yrs-13yrs). (Senior class="4"; 3 boys and 1 girl, Age: 14yrs-17yrs). 4) Service Providers (4; 2 males and 2 females, Age: 25yrs and above). Semi-structured interviews using three-point interview guides were used to understand the barriers and facilitators. Focus group sessions were digitally audio-recorded along with note taking. Thematic analysis was used for analyzing the interview data. Thematic content analysis of tape recordings revealed facilitators and barriers. The following themes were identified: 1. Favourite physical activity and sports included jogging, dancing, soccer, rope skipping, and weight lifting. 2. Individuals with disabilities were motivated to engage in physical activity because it kept them fit, gave them joy, and tended to make them forget their worries. 3. PA makes individuals with disabilities avoid living sedentary lifestyle. 4. Barriers related to stigma, restrictive environment, lack of facilities especially for those interested in cycling, lack of soccer with bells, lack of musical instruments for dancing, lack of support from the government and individuals, absence of adapted physical activity experts, no adaptive equipment for PA and sports. Involvement of individuals with disabilities in physical activity is affected by several barriers and facilitators that are peculiar to their environment. It is recommended that future research should utilize this information to develop intervention strategies that have potential for creating opportunities to participate in physical activities by the youth with visual and hearing impairments.Subscribe to Palaestra
