The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals highlight the importance of optimal early childhood development to enable children to reach their full potential ( Black et al., 2017 ), with physical development being a critical component ( World Health Organization, 2007a ). As such, it is widely

Test (CCTT). Successful performance on the CCTT requires utilization of a variety of EF skills, such as sustained attention, perceptual tracking, sequencing, psychomotor speed, and cognitive flexibility ( Llorente et al., 2003 ). Thus, the CCTT provides a measure of overall EF ability rather than a

quadriceps and calf muscle injuries, groin/pubis injuries, and anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions seem to be more prone to sustain a hamstring injury. 7 Thus, previous HSIs and a history of injuries in adjacent regions amount to 2 independent HSI risk factors in this study. The reference values for

sustain such changes are unknown. Because only 3 sessions per week of low–moderate PA have been associated with significant initial reductions in negative mood 4 and a dose–response (PA–mood) relationship is not apparent, 5 theories attributing those psychosocial improvements to mostly associated

. We did not quantify liner densities of the tested helmets and therefore did not explore the relationship between liner density and peak headform acceleration. The UOF helmet shell sustained a fracture when impacted against the equestrian hazard anvil. During the UOF helmet right-side impact, the

reported. 2 Poor hamstring flexibility has been proposed as a potential risk factor for sustaining a hamstring strain. 7 Sprinting is proposed to be a common mechanism of hamstring injury in field sports such as Gaelic games. 3 The hamstrings experience high loading when they are in a maximal or
