           SWOT Analysis: Student Opinions

    • Authors: Didem Gülçin KAYA; Yücel OCAK
      Abstract: This research aims to examine the Physical Education and Sports Teaching department through SWOT analysis and evaluate the present situation. The phenomenology design, one of the qualitative research methods, was used in the research. The research group consists of 56 Sports Science students, 29 females and 27 males. During the data collection phase, a semi-structured interview form created by the researchers was used, and the data obtained were analyzed using a descriptive analysis technique. As a result of the research, students described the Physical education and sports teaching department as sacred; they stated that the number of applied courses was small. They also emphasized that there is a diversity of work in the field and that injury is also a risk factor. According to the research results, it may be suggested to carry out complementary studies to improve the negative aspects and include other departments within the sports sciences.

  • Effectiveness of Video Simulation Training on Anticipation Timing for Law
           Enforcement Officers

    • Authors: Andrew SHİM; Elisabeth MUNDY, Robert LOCKİE
      Abstract: Objectives To examine the anticipation timing performance of law enforcement officers before and after four consecutive weeks of completing video simulations. Design A one group pre/post study design (n =15) was selected for this investigation. Methods 15 healthy police officers (13 men, 2 women)) from a Midwest law enforcement agency were selected for the study. The Bassin anticipation timer was used in this study. The object stimulus speed was set at 3.0 mph in accordance with prior studies. Participants were allowed a single practice trial on the anticipation timer and before given 3 trials pre and post. The anticipation timer was placed approximately two feet in front of the participant on a table with the target light marked and in view of the participant. The subject anticipated when the moving light would land on the indicated target and coincide with it a press of the push button. The data from the anticipation timer was measured in .001 seconds. The Virtra was selected as the intervention. It.involves a video simulator that uses virtual reality and certified curriculum to project a real-life scenario onto a 300° projector. Each participant performed a different video simulation two times per week for 4 consecutive weeks. A dependent t-test (SPSS ver. 26) determined a significant relationship (p = 0.035) between pre and post test scores after 4 weeks. Results The average between the three pretest scores were 0.056. The average improved from the pretest to the posttest. The average between the three posttest scores were 0.037 seconds. Conclusion Coincidence anticipation timing improved with police officers within 4 weeks when training with a VirTra video system twice a week. This may provide a new method for training for law enforcement officers.

  • Testing and Tuning of the Sport Archery Bow and Arrow System

    • Authors: Ihor ZANEVSKYY; Lyudmyla ZANEVSKA
      Abstract: Background. Testing and tuning of the archery bow and arrow system is an important component for successful shooting. The aim of the research is to develop an analytical method of the virtual testing and tuning of the archery bow and arrow system and optimizing of the height of the plunger and arrow rest. Materials and Methods. Modern recurve bows in the frames of International Archery Federation standards are studied. Modeling is used to derive a method of preparation of the bow for sport archery competition. A model of the archery bow as a kinematical chain with solid members united with rotated kinematical pairs is investigated. Results. The bow and arrow system was studied in the braced and drawn situations, and methods of virtual testing and optimizing of the height of the plunger and arrow rest above the hand is developed. The bow and arrow with a zero angle of attack can not be symmetrical in the main plane because an arrow and a hand that holds a bow could not situated together at the same place. Conclusion. The results of modeling are presented in a simple form (as tables and figures) which are suitable for coachers and shooters who are unready to use the mathematical methods.

    • Authors: Mücahit IŞIK; Ömer ŞENEL
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to compare the acute effects of static and dynamic stretching exercises on the power and agility of adolescent male football players. Ten male football players (age 15.8 ± 1.47 years, height 1.66 ± 0.05 m, body weight 59.6 ± 10.7 kg, training age 3 ± 1.94 years) from a team competing in the Bitlis 1st Amateur Group B of the 2019/20 season voluntarily participated in the study. All subjects participated in control (warm-up only), static stretching (warm-up + static stretching) and dynamic stretching (warm-up + dynamic stretching) exercise groups, respectively, on non-consecutive days. All groups were given 10-minute warm-up exercises. After warming up, the control group was given 10 minutes of passive rest. For the main muscle groups, 10 minutes of static stretching was applied to one of the other two groups, and 10 minutes of dynamic stretching exercises were applied to the other. After 1-2 minutes of rest, T-drill, medicine ball throwing and vertical jump test measurements were taken from the athletes, respectively. The obtained data were analyzed statistically and the level of significance was determined as p

      Abstract: Objective: The aim of this study is to examine the effects of aerobic exercise on stress and brain-gut axis in individuals.Materials and Methods: Twenty adult individuals who did not exercise regularly before, were 18 years of age and older, had no barriers to aerobic exercise, actively used e-mail addresses and agreed to participate in the study voluntarily participated in the study. The participants were given an aerobic exercise program (exercises such as light-moderate walking, cycling and swimming in the open air), 3 days a week, for a total of 5 hours, without being divided into any groups. Individuals were asked to fill in a 10-item perceived stress scale and a brain-gut axis inquiry form, which included 46 questions, after performing aerobic exercise before and at the end of aerobic exercise. The data obtained were evaluated in the SPSS version 26.0 package program.Results: A significant difference was found between the pre-test and post-test results in terms of the perceived stress and the effects on the brain-gut axis of individuals performing aerobic exercise. While the decrease in the stress subunit of the brain-gut axis questionnaire form was 7.23%, the decrease in the stress perception scale was 22.73%.Conclusion: As a result of the study, it can be suggested that aerobic exercises can reduce the perception of stress in individuals and has the potential to affect the brain-gut axis. The stress subunit of the brain-gut axis also decreased, albeit less in percentage. It can be said that 1 week of aerobic exercise affects the perception of stress more than the brain-gut axis.
