1. Miller, Karen Susanne. The Effects on Soccer Dribbling Skills When Training With Two Different Sized Soccer Balls.

Degree: M.S.Ed., Health, Sport and Exercise Sciences, 2012, University of Kansas

The purpose of this study was to determine the effects, if any, on soccer dribbling skills in children, ages, 8-10, after practicing with different sized soccer balls during the season. The Kansas Youth Soccer Association (KYSA, 2008) and the United States Soccer Association (US Soccer, 2011) recommended that children use smaller sized soccer balls than regulation adult sized soccer balls. As indicated by the associations, the size three ball is recommended for children under 8 (U-8), the size four ball is recommended for children under 12 (U-12), and the size five ball is recommended for children older than 12. Twenty-four recreational soccer players from Kansas participated in the study. The participants were from two different teams. The children were randomly placed on the teams by the league officials, unless parents specifically requested a coach. The Mor-Christian General Soccer Ability Skill Test Battery was used to test soccer dribbling skills (Collins & Hodges, 2001 p. 208). Both teams were timed in a pretest for soccer dribbling skills. Team one, the experimental group, was tested using the size five ball, and team two, the control group, was tested using the size four ball. The pretest was followed by six weeks of practice using their assigned size balls. Practice consisted of 1 hour practices twice a week. At the end of the six weeks program, a posttest was administered to both teams. Data were collected and a t-test was used to analyze the data. The results of this study indicated that there was not a significant difference in dribbling skills between the children in the control group as compared to the children in the experimental group. While the size four ball revealed quicker time results, these numbers were not significant enough to rule out the effect of what would be expected by chance. Based on the finding of this study, the following conclusions were made: 1) ball size does not offset dribbling skills in young soccer players; 2) soccer players 8 to 10 years old should continue to play with the smaller size four ball; and 3) the weight and size of the larger ball may be too cumbersome for young players to control and develop dribbling skills.

2. Hook, Lacole Lea. Athletic Identity, Vocational Identity, and Occupational Engagement in College Student-Athletes and Non-Athletes.

Degree: PhD, Health, Sport and Exercise Sciences, 2012, University of Kansas

Athletic departments in National Collegiate Athletic Association Football Bowl Subdivision universities provide academic support services to their student-athletes. Even though student-athletes receive help including career assistance from academic counselors, some studies have found that student-athletes are behind non-athletes in career development. This study examined the relationship between athletic identity and career identity in student-athletes attending one Football Bowl Subdivision institution in comparison with non-athletes, between genders of student-athletes, and between earlier and later years in college for student-athletes using multiple instruments: Athletic Identity Measurement Scale; Vocational Identity Scale of the My Vocational Situation; and the Occupational Engagement Scale-Student. No relationship was found to exist between athletic identity and vocational identity or athletic identity and occupational engagement. Non-athletes had higher occupational engagement levels than did student-athletes, while student-athletes had higher vocational identity levels than did non-athletes. Additionally, female student-athletes had higher occupational engagement levels than did male student-athletes. Student-athletes in years 3 and 4 had higher occupational engagement levels than did student-athletes in years 1 and 2.

3. Dodd, Regan Kathleen. Self-Perceptions of College Female Athletes, Exercisers, and Non-Exercisers of their Sport Comptence, Physical Conditioning, Body Attractiveness, Physical Strength, and Overall Physical Self-Worth.

Degree: PhD, Health, Sport and Exercise Sciences, 2012, University of Kansas

The purpose of this study was to further understand physical self-perception differences between athletes and exercisers, athletes and non-exercisers, and exercisers and non-exercisers and investigate the influence of each of the four subdomains (i.e., sport competence, physical conditioning, body attractiveness, and physical strength) on college females' overall physical self-worth. The Physical Self-Perception Profile was used to survey female college students attending one Midwestern University. Self-perceptions of the subdomains of physical strength and body attractiveness were statistically significant positive predictors of female college students' overall physical self-worth for all three groups. That is, female athletes, exercisers, and non-exercisers who perceived their body attractiveness and physical strength positively were more likely to perceive their overall physical self-worth more positively. However, no statistically significant differences were reported on the subdomain of body attractiveness among any of the three groups. Statistically significant differences were reported between athletes and exercisers, athletes and non-exercisers, and exercisers and non-exercisers on self-perceptions of their physical strength. Therefore, it was concluded that overall physical self-worth could be improved when exercise programs and sport competition focused on the development of physical strength.
