Child in Sport and Physical Activity. International Series on Sport Sciences. Volume 3.
Albinson, J.G., Ed.; Andrew, G.M., Ed.
This collection of papers reviews the effects of sport and physical activity on children. It is organized around six sections representing the basic disciplines that contribute to a broad view of the child in sport and physical activity: physiology; medicine; growth and development; psychology; sociology; and motor learning. Although each paper addresses a single, specific topic, all are concerned with the examination of past progress, current status, present trends, and future directions in the understanding of the role sport and physical activity plays in society.
