Centeio, Erin E.; Barcelona, Jeanne; Fahlman, Mariane; Kulik, Noel; Shen, Bo; Garn, Alex; McCaughtry, Nate – International Journal of Kinesiology in Higher Education, 2021
There is a clear and well-documented link between physical activity (PA) and health. However, many youth do not participate in the recommended levels of PA in order to gain health benefits. Given the health disparities among urban youth, specifically among African American youth, and mindful of the lack of data for Arab Americans, the purpose of…

Tuckey, Claire M.; Patterson, Jae T. – International Journal of Kinesiology in Higher Education, 2021
The study of sport specific expertise, and varsity cheerleading, in particular, is rising in competitiveness in recent years. In the motor learning literature, cheerleading has yet to be explored as an athletic experience that may exemplify being an error detection expert. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine whether having…
