A SIR/CAR Systems Analysis of the Longitudinal Changes in Little League Baseball Comparing Windsor with the Rest of Ontario and Canada.
Zarebski, John; Moriarty, Dick
The trends and changes occurring in Windsor District 5 Little League Baseball between 1971 and 1978 were closely monitored in order for researchers to discern the results of Sports Institute for Research/Change Agent Research (SIR/CAR) intervention in these programs. Comparisons of the 1972, 1976, and 1978 studies reveal that the values focus of the Windsor group significantly shifted away from competitive emphasis and towards an attitude stressing the social aspects of sports. A tentative conclusion may be drawn that through the use of SIR/CAR research methodology, and with the collaboration of universities and colleges, youth sports personnel can realistically reevaluate their avowed goals and update their operational programs to better facilitate their goal achievement.
