1. Cox, Ramona Denice. How urban African American adolescent girls survive in sport : the influence of perceived intrapersonal, interpersonal, environmental, and sociocultural factors.

Degree: 2014, Michigan State University

Thesis Ph. D. Michigan State University. Kinesiology 2014.

The goal of this study was to address the barriers experienced by African American adolescent girls who were engaged in sport in urban areas and how these girls who continued participation overcome the barriers. This study also sought to better understand the components of quality sports and physical activity programming that will engage and encourage continued participation among this population. Qualitative methodology in the form of focus group interviews were used for this descriptive study. Participants consisted of 13 African American adolescent girls between the ages of 13 and 17 in grades 9 through 12 who were participants in an organized Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) volleyball program in an urban environment. A social ecological framework was utilized and findings revealed that intrapersonal, interpersonal, environmental, and sociocultural factors were significant in influencing sport and physical activity participation. Results revealed a number of challenges and barriers to sport participation including concerns regarding image, identity related issues (race/gender), criticism from significant others, resources and access limitations, lack of skills and ability, and the negative influence of coaches. Strategies and support systems utilized by girls in this study included the positive influence and support from others, exhibiting persistence and determination, navigating image concerns, and possessing a positive attitude and high levels of confidence. Professionals that work with adolescents need to have an understanding of the relationships among the personal, social, cultural, and environmental factors girls experience and use this knowledge in designing and implementing interventions that will best serve this population. Implications for program development included providing opportunities that are fun and offer a variety of activities, are gender specific and culturally relevant, and have African American females in coaching and administrative positions to serve as role models.

2. Cowburn, Ian Henry James. The stressors experienced and coping strategies used by the parents of youth swimmers.

Degree: 2015, Michigan State University

Thesis Ph. D. Michigan State University. Kinesiology 2015

Parents are major agents in the youth sport experience, and yet we understand little regarding the sport parenting experience, particularly the benefits and stressors experienced, and the coping strategies used by sports parents. The purposes of this study were threefold: (1) determine the benefits and stressors experienced by youth sport parents; (2) determine the coping strategies used by swimming parents; and (3) conduct sport parent stress research that included both parents to better understand individual and family functioning. The purposes of the study were addressed by interviewing 10 parent-dyads regarding their experiences in youth sport. Nomothetic and case study analyses revealed that parents experienced a number of benefits (e.g., parent friendships or child life-skill development) and stressors (e.g., planning and logistics stressors), and engaged in numerous coping strategies (e.g., communication) due to swimming involvement. Parents perceived multiple stressors at any one time and engaged in multiple coping strategies to cope with the stressors experienced. Links between specific stressors, and coping strategies were difficult to draw because of the complex and idiosyncratic nature of the stress and coping appraisal process. Case study analyses further explained the idiosyncratic nature of the stress and coping relationship by demonstrating that parent-dyads experienced similar stressors in different ways due to family demographics and specific family narratives. Additionally, parent-dyads worked together to divide stressors between the two parents (e.g., one parent would be the taxi driver for practice while the other made dinner) as a way of reducing stress and increasing coping strategy efficiency. Overall parent coping appeared to be successful and adaptive with regard to the stressors faced
