policy specific to atheltes with EDs than a policy intended for the general student body. As a unique subpopulation of people with EDs, athletes likely require diagnostic criteria and treatment that meet their specific needs ( Beals & Manroe, 1994 ). This specialization should come in the form of the

This study examined variability in throwing speed and spatial error to test the prediction of an inverted-U function (i.e., impulse-variability [IV] theory) and the speed-accuracy trade-off. Forty-five 9- to 11-year-old children were instructed to throw at a specified percentage of maximum speed (45%, 65%, 85%, and 100%) and hit the wall target. Results indicated no statistically significant differences in variable error across the target conditions (p = .72), failing to support the inverted-U hypothesis. Spatial accuracy results indicated no statistically significant differences with mean radial error (p = .18), centroid radial error (p = .13), and bivariate variable error (p = .08) also failing to support the speed-accuracy trade-off in overarm throwing. As neither throwing performance variability nor accuracy changed across percentages of maximum speed in this sample of children as well as in a previous adult sample, current policy and practices of practitioners may need to be reevaluated.

. For instance, coaches may establish and enforce alcohol policies in an attempt to manage athletes’ alcohol consumption, but the effectiveness of such rule-based strategies are inconclusive ( Pitts, Chow, & Yang, 2018 ; Williams et al., 2008 ). Conversely, coaches who approve of, or are lenient toward

The relational intersection of others’ values and beliefs with one’s own may contribute to feelings of moral discomfort—the tension that arises from dissonance between perceptions

(abuser and mandatory reporter), a systems perspective (c.f., Bronfenbrenner & Morris, 1998 ; Eiler, Kallen, & Richardson, 2017 ) is needed to inform new policies, procedures, and plans. Unfortunately, current procedures have not been effective. Sports organizations often minimize and trivialize victims
