SSHRC award to study women and girl's soccer

Posted 08 Jul 2018

We have just been awarded a SSHRC Insight Grant, funded through Sport Canada's Sport Participation Research Initiative (SPRI), to study Longitudinal engagement in female soccer: Analysis of developmental pathways related to success. The aim is to identify factors which contribute to continued participation through adolescence (at various levels of competition). The aim is to better understand the factors which facilitate successful transitions through particular developmental periods of sports participation and how these are related to early sport involvement choices and pathways. If this research is of interest to you, please do contact Dr Hodges.
