To promote transfer, coaches must help students recognize their existing skills and encourage them to practice the skills learned in sport in everyday life situations ( Pierce, Gould, & Camiré, 2017 ).

Historically, talent transfer (TT) is known to be a formalized 1 process designed to facilitate the movement of skilled athletes from one sport to another ( Collins et al., 2014 ). 2 While the reasons athletes look to transfer between sports may vary (as will be discussed below), this has not

The aim of this study was to compare the effects of grab rail position, orientation, and number of hands used on the kinetics of assisted sit-to-stand transfers. Participants were 12 able-bodied older adults between the ages of 69 and 88 years. While each one performed the sit-to-stand transfer, a motion analysis system with 9 cameras recording at 60 Hz tracked the 3-D trajectories of retroreflective markers. Bilateral 3-D platform, grab rail, and seat force data were collected at 200 Hz and normalized to participant body weight. Four lateral conditions were tested: vertical, 45° inclined, and horizontal with the hand placed at 150 mm and 400 mm forward of the seat front edge. Four anterior conditions were tested: vertical and horizontal orientations with the use of one hand and two hands. Posterior grab rail force increased with anterior assistance and with two-hand use compared to lateral assistance and single hand use, respectively. The selection of grab rail position and the number of hands incorporated during assistance also determined the symmetry of an-teroposterior net joint forces, net joint moments, and joint powers. Grab rail orientation determined the height of the gripping hand which influenced the assistance strategy. Grab rail position, orientation, and the amount of upper body contribution influenced the assisted sit-to-stand transfer. These kinetic responses to grab rail location require careful consideration in order to optimize grab rail assistance during the sit-to-stand transfer.

The purpose of this study was to examine youth development outcomes in an Urban Squash program.


A mixed method approach to was employed to address three research questions: 1) to what extent did the Urban Squash program exhibit features of a quality OST program?; 2) what aspects of the Urban Squash program were most valued by participants and stakeholders?; and 3) how were outcomes gained within urban squash transferred into the school day. The OST Observation Instrument was employed to provide a measure of fidelity related to the implementation of quality program structures. Youth participants (N = 21) and adults (N = 13) with knowledge of the program were interviewed in a semistructured format. Qualitative inductive analysis and constant comparison methods were used to generate themes.


Systematic observations demonstrated that the program reflected a strong program design with activities that were sequenced, active, personally focused, and explicit. Within that context, four qualitative themes related to quality programming include 1) academic enrichment, 2) academic transfer, 3) relationships, and 4) personal and social responsibility.


Urban Squash provided a quality program structure. Transfer from the program to the school was evident with academic enrichment and personal and social responsibility.

Researchers have indicated that there should be clear, explicit approaches for debriefing experiences and facilitating transfer of the learning

In most of these tests, the participants who earlier had practiced in a random order performed better (faster and
