female counterparts may reach ∼70 W·kg −1 in CMJ and ∼30 W·kg −1 in sprint running, cycling, and rowing. The presented values can serve as reference values for practitioners and scientists working with elite athletes. Compared with the comprehensive data published on aerobic and anaerobic power values

This investigation examined the change in children’s participation and attitudes toward sport team involvement from late elementary school to the beginning of high school. A questionnaire designed to measure importance of rewards was given to all 5th and 6th graders (n = 238) from a community with an extensive sports program. Five years later, as 10th and 11th graders, 166 (71%) of the original group participated in the follow-up study. Factor analysis extracted two consistent factors at both questionnaire administrations. One was labeled “extrinsic reward” while the other was labeled “intrinsic satisfaction.” A logit analysis using weighted least squares indicated that past participation and gender as well as the interaction of the importance given to the two reward systems contributed significantly to predicting present participation. An additional model including present value given to reward systems suggested that present value for intrinsic satisfaction might improve prediction of present participation.

Using the contingent valuation method, this article estimates the value of public goods the National Football League’s Jaguars produce for Jacksonville, Florida, including the value of elevating Jacksonville to “major league” status and the value of improving racial relations. It also estimates the incremental value of public goods potentially produced by a National Basketball Association team in Jacksonville. The present value of public goods created by the Jaguars is $36.5 million or less, far below subsidies provided to attract the Jaguars. For a basketball team, the figure is less than $22.8 million. The results add to the growing body of CVM literature indicating that sport public goods probably cannot justify the large public expenditures on stadiums and arenas.

For both athletes, triangles represent the optimum power load. Independent of the power values, they achieved their maximum power outputs at the

exercise intensity, the presented values of Table  3 predict a TL of 4223, 349, and 255 AU for sRPE, luTRIMP, and TSS, respectively. This would give a difference of 5%, 4%, and 48% for sRPE, luTRIMP, and TSS, respectively, between low- and high-IF sessions, showing that TSS reacts different on exercise

Similarly, most studies that would need to use a Youth Compendium would not be likely to assess true BMR. We did not present values separately by sex. The Adult Compendium does
