The quality of the counseling relationship has proven to be the most significant factor in facilitating treatment adherence and positive counseling outcomes. The authors of the present article contend that the dynamics of the sport psychologist-athlete relationship are quite similar to those of counselor-client relationship. They offer suggestions for the training of sport and exercise psychology graduate students that borrow extensively from the research and training strategies used in counselor education. In particular, a possible interface between sport psychology and counseling psychology training and practice is suggested, a brief overview of research on the qualities of the counseling relationship is presented, and several training strategies are provided.

This paper provides a critical assessment of the sponsorship relationship by examining relationship-related causes of termination. Based on a comprehensive investigation of major sport organizations and their sponsors spanning four years, the findings reveal partners at cross-purposes due to changing perceptions of value, opportunity, and responsibility. Related problems involving strategic versus tactical intent, commitment asymmetry, and sponsorship capability gap are identified. The research develops our understanding of the interfirm dynamics of sport sponsorship relationships including how they should be managed to avoid termination. Recommendations to prevent sponsorship termination and improve relationship outcomes, and directions for future research are provided.

, more relevant parameters for skeletal health, such as vertical peaks (VPs), can also be derived. Using this approach, cross-sectional studies have identified the relationships between the number of VPs, including higher impacts achieved during weight-bearing exercise, and measures of skeletal health

purposes of analysis, we elected to only include data where the player completed the full 90 minutes match, and that all associated wellness ratings were available. As the principal aim of this study was to determine dose–response relationships, running volumes (distance in meters) were used to capture the

The major problem with those previous studies resides in the fact that they have relied on cross-sectional data. Considering the long-term nature of the preparation phase, the relationship

Gross and Martin (1952), and Escovar and Sim (1974), proposed group resistance to disruption (GRD) as an alternative conception of cohesion, but the GRD/cohesion relationship has not been empirically examined. In Study 1, this relationship was examined using an extreme-groups design. It was a priori predicted that elite athletes perceiving high team cohesion would also perceive high GRD. The prediction was supported for three of four aspects of cohesion assessed by the Group Environment Questionnaire. Study 2 methodologically extended Study 1 and examined the GRD/cohesion relationship comparatively across physical activity groups. Elite sport, recreational sport, and fitness class groups were assessed. Participants extreme in GRD were predicted on the basis of their cohesion scores. Results indicated that the form and extent of the GRD/cohesion relationship was moderated by group type. In both studies, group task cohesion was positively related to GRD for all samples. The studies represent the first demonstration of this important but neglected relationship.

In the review by Donnelly et al ( 3 ), all 3 longitudinal studies included, a positive relationship between physical fitness and academic performance was reported. However, Santana et al ( 18 ) only found positive

considerable fatigue that could interrupt training. As one way to address these constraints, Allen and Coggan 7 suggested estimating FTP as 95% of the MPO achieved during a 20-minute TT. To our knowledge, this relationship has not been demonstrated in the literature; however, confirming that a shorter TT is
