adults are prone to exert excessive force compared with young adults during object manipulations ( Diermayr et al., 2011 ; Ranganathan et al., 2001 ). Furthermore, older adults exhibit higher force fluctuations during constant force exertion ( Keogh, Morrison, & Barrett, 2006 ; Ranganathan et al., 2001

It has been hypothesized that young children engage in physical activity, thereby helping their movement skills develop, and in turn they develop positive perceptions of their movement skill competence ( Stodden et al., 2008 ). This process is seen as positive and cyclical, in that as

In this paper, we explore coach-athlete sexual relationships (CASRs) from the perspective of young athletes, with the aim of adding to the evolving research on CASRs as a contested social phenomenon. Our starting point is what we see as two conflicting images of such relationships in contemporary
