1. Larson, Elizabeth Anne. A comprehensive prospective analysis of soccer heading among male and female collegiate soccer athletes.

Degree: MS, Kinesiology, 2011, Humboldt State University

The purpose of this study was to conduct a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, prospective study of soccer heading and its potential effects among male and female collegiate soccer players. Specifically, this study evaluated individual neck strength and accelerations experienced by the head during bouts of routine soccer heading and examined this information in regard to videorecorded exposure data and neurocognitive performance. The participants for the study included 51 Division-II collegiate soccer players from the Humboldt State University women???s (n=27) and men???s (n=24) (part 1 of study); 13 of them participated in part 2; 7 women, 6 men. All subjects were voluntarily recruited from the Humboldt State University soccer teams. For part 1 of the study, a self-report heading index was administered, pre and post-season neurocognitive (ImPACT) scores were collected, and four randomly selected practices and games were videorecorded for collection of exposure data. In part 2 of the study a handheld dynamometer (BIOPAC) was used to gather neck strength information and a tri-axial accelerometer (G-Link) was used to record accelerations experienced by the head during heading trials in which a soccer ball was ejected from a ball machine at a prescribed rate and trajectory. The results of the study supported the hypothesis that there would be no significant neurocognitive changes after a season of soccer heading for the group as a whole. However, there was a significant difference in visual memory change scores for the ???header??? group versus the ???not a header??? group. The hypothesis that there would be significant sex differences in neck strength and heading accelerations was also supported. However, males exhibited greater heading accelerations than females, contrary to initial expectations. Finally, the hypothesis that neck strength would be negatively correlated with heading accelerations was partially supported. Specifically, neck strength was positively correlated with accelerations experienced during flick-on headers. However, a number of additional non-significant trends for sex differences for each neck strength measure by header type were also supported. Advisors/Committee Members: Kontos, Anthony P..

2. Newell, Bryce. The relationship of coaches' leadership styles and gender to performance outcomes and academic performance in college basketball.

Degree: MS, Kinesiology: Teaching/Coaching, 2007, Humboldt State University

The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to explore the relationship between leadership styles among head basketball coaches from NCAA Division II men???s and women???s basketball teams and performance outcomes and academic performance. A second purpose of this study was to explore gender differences in leadership styles and outcomes. The participants for the study included 16 men???s (n= 12) and women???s (n= 4) head basketball coaches from the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA), which is a NCAA Division II level conference. Four of the men and all four women were head coaches of women???s programs. This study employed self-reported measures including a demographic coaching questionnaire and the Leadership Scale for Sports (LSS: Chelladurai, 1993; 1998) to assess leadership behavior styles and related factors among the coaches. Performance and academic performance data were obtained from each institution. The results of a series of Pearson product moment correlations supported significant positive relationships between Autocratic leadership behavior and performance outcomes including margin of victory and rebounding margin. A 2X2 MANOVA revealed no significant gender differences among coaches for leadership behaviors. There were, however, several significant relationships among the continuous performance variables including a positive relationship between field goal percentage and points per game with total years of coaching experience. There were no correlations between coaching leadership style and overall team GPA. Advisors/Committee Members: Kontos, Anthony P..

3. Diemer, Susan. The effects of video game and comic book character viewing on middle school boys' drive for muscularity and body satisfaction.

Degree: MS, Kinesiology: Exercise Science, 2010, Humboldt State University

The purpose of this experimental study was to determine whether viewing video game and comic book characters, depicting the current idealized muscular male body ideal, would affect 6th through 8th grade middle school boys??? drive for muscularity and body satisfaction. A second purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between maturational timing and concomitant somatotypes and the drive for muscularity and body satisfaction in the same age group of boys. The participants of the study included 54 (n=54) middle school boys in grades 6 through 8 from two local middle schools in Humboldt County. Twenty-one (n=21) 6th graders, 15 7th graders and 18 8th graders were randomly assigned to one of three experimental groups; Control Group, Experimental Group 1 (muscular images) and Experimental Group 2 (non-muscular images). This study utilized the Drive for Muscularity Scale (DMS) (McCreary & Sasse, 2000) to measure the subject degree of drive for muscularity and the Body Parts Satisfaction Scale (Slade et al, 1990) to evaluate levels of body satisfaction. The results did not support the hypothesis that boys who viewed pictures of hyper-muscled comic book and video game characters would have a higher drive for muscularity and lower body part satisfaction; in fact there was an overall decrease in DM and an increase in BPS pretest to posttest in this population. Additionally, a trend suggested that perceived mesomorphs had a greater DM than perceived endomorphs and ectomorphs. Advisors/Committee Members: Kontos, Anthony P..
