  • Harmonious or Conflicted' A Qualitative Study of Father-Coach and
           Daughter Relationships in Youth Sport

    • Authors: Isabel Ormond, Nicholas Holt
      Abstract: Representatives of some Canadian sport organizations have called for more research with parent-coaches in order to inform policy and educational initiatives. The purpose of this study was to examine perceptions of relationships between father-coaches and their daughters. Sixteen participants (eight father-coaches and eight daughters) completed individual interviews, which were transcribed verbatim and subjected to a dyadic analysis. Four dyads were coded as harmonious and four dyads were coded as conflicted. Certain factors differentiated between the harmonious and conflicted dyads. For example, in the harmonious dyads father-coaches adopted a relationship-oriented coaching approach and were consistent in their behaviors between home and sport settings. In the conflicted dyads, father-coaches adopted a more intense coaching approach and behaved differently in home versus sport settings. Father-coaches in the conflicted dyads were also much harsher on their own daughters compared to father-coaches in the harmonious dyads. These differentiating factors offer guidance that may inform training and educational opportunities specifically geared toward parent-coaches.

  • An Examination of Motivations, Attitudes and Charitable Intentions for
           Running in a Charity Event

    • Authors: Eddie Hill, Stephen Shiparo, Lynn Ridinger, Edwin Gomez
      Abstract: Running, as a form of leisure time physical activity is generally popular due to its low-cost entry, easy access to practice, and the convenience and accessible nature of the activity. Specifically, one type of running experience sought by many is charitable running or running for a cause (i.e., cause-related sport event). While there is a growing body of literature on charity sport events, little is known about how the charitable motives and participant identity with the event affect future behaviors associated with the cause and the event. Grounded in identity theory, the purpose of this article was to examine the effect of salient identities and charitable motives on future intentions associated with a cause-related event. Data were collected from the second annual Norfolk Freedom Half Marathon, in Virginia, via an online survey that was sent to all registered runners (1,372) one week after the race and 557 participants responded. We found charity motives to be the dominant influence on both charitable and purchase intentions in cause-event participants. This study contributes to the existing amateur sport literature as one of the first to report on a military-oriented sport event with military affiliated participants; the creation of the Charitable Motives in Sport Scale (CMISS), the Runner Identity Scale (RIS) and the Military Identity Scale (MIS); and the addition of a new military/runner identity typology, which we hope would be useful for future military-affiliated running events.

  • Quality of Life is Lowest Among Female Athletes at the Community College
           Compared to University Sport Levels

    • Authors: Kaila Vento, Megan Miller, Carly Graff, Cailey Olono, Jessica Bryant, Heidi Lynch
      Abstract: Quality of life (QOL) is essential for sport and academic performance, personal satisfaction, and general health. This study aimed to examine the QOL of female athletes at the NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NJCAA Division II, and student club sport levels. This cross-sectional study included N= 159 female athletes to complete a personal demographics and World Health Organization Quality of Life- Brief (WHOQOL-BREF) assessment. The primary QOL, including physical, mental, social relationships, and environmental health domains and total scores, were analyzed using Kruskal-Wallis tests. NCAA DI had a higher total QOL score than NJCAA (p< 0.001) and NCAA DII and NJCAA athletes (p< 0.05). Likewise, NCAA DI had higher physical health scores than NCAA DII and NJCAA DII athletes, and club athletes higher than NCAA DII, p< 0.001. Lower mental health scores were found for NJCAA and club athletes compared to NCAA I, p< 0.01, and NCAA II, p= 0.02, athletes. NJCAA athletes had lower environmental health than NCAA DI and DII sports athletes, p= 0.05. No differences were found for the social relationships domain, p= 0.61. In conclusion, collegiate female athletes’ QOL warrants improved wellness services, especially at the NJCAA level. Keywords: wellness, health, survey, resources, support

  • Perspectives on Native American Imagery from Students at a Premiere Tribal

    • Authors: Zach Scola, Zach Wilkerson, Brian S. Gordon
      Abstract: Haskell Indian Nations University is the sole 4-year intertribal university in America and their athletics department is called The Fightin’ Indians. Their logo and name seem to contradict most of the research describing the negative impacts of Native imagery. Interviews were conducted with current students at Haskell University to understand their feelings towards Native imagery overall. When exploring the usage of Native imagery by Haskell it was apparent the students felt as an all-Native institution there was a sense of ownership to utilize the imagery but were aware it misrepresented some Native people. The students also discussed how their imagery may influence outsiders’ perspectives. This study helps us understand a unique situation and should lead to future research around Native American imagery in sport.

  • Investigating Student-Donor Memberships Within Collegiate Athletics

    • Authors: Austin Bogina, Brian Gordon
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to discover the primary characteristics associated with offering student-donor memberships within collegiate athletics. The secondary purpose was to detail the best practices for properly implementing a student-donor membership”. Through semi-structured interviews, the unique insights of 10 NCAA Division I Power-5 fundraising and development associates were able to be explored. The results of this study produced five factors associated with student-donor memberships: structure, benefits, membership fee, communication, and branding. These findings fill a gap in the existing literature due to there being no previous research conducted on student donor programs within collegiate athletics. Furthermore, this study illustrates the common characteristics among student-donor memberships and what we already know about athletic annual funds. While no current research exists on how student-donors fit into the donor life cycle, the results of this study further the knowledge on this highly important yet under examined group.
