Abstract

"The purpose of this study was to examine factorial, convergent, discriminant, and criteria&#xD;validity of a multi-dimensional scale measuring coaching efficacy (Feltz, Chase, Moritz, &&#xD;Sullivan, 1999). The sample consisted of 281 Norwegian grassroot football coaches taking part&#xD;in two data collections (across the football season) within the Norwegian arm of the international&#xD;PAPA project (intervention group, n = 193) and control group, n = 88). Latent variable&#xD;modeling supported a 4-factor model reflecting Motivation efficacy, Strategy efficacy, Technique&#xD;efficacy and Character efficacy. An introductory ESEM analysis of the 24-item coaching&#xD;efficacy scale yielded an acceptable solution after omitting two items. A parceling approach of&#xD;the twenty-two items were then converted into eleven parcels to examine factorial validity and&#xD;time and group invariance. The four-factor model based on parcels obtained good fit indices:&#xD;(S-B χ2 = [df = 29, n = 222] = 38.622, p < .011 (ns.); RMSEA = .039; 90% (CI = .000–.068);&#xD;CFI = .99; SRMR = .023). Moreover, we obtained strong support for time invariance for a&#xD;merged solution of the two groups of coaches. Invariance across time for the intervention&#xD;and control group separately was supported at time 1, but not at time 2. Satisfactorily convergent,&#xD;discriminant, and criteria validity were also supported. The scale needs further validation&#xD;before use in intervention studies."&#xD;

Abstract

"This study shows some generic characteristics from sports that are of relevance to&#xD;samhandling structures under risk. The findings are based on a case study of the&#xD;concept of “Total Football” and the Rosenborg Football Club (RBK) in Norway.&#xD;Football is a dynamic sport with several factors that come into play and where&#xD;flexible solutions are demanded. The case is also of relevance for organizations in&#xD;handling risk. RBK’s samhandling is based on “Total Football” and flow theory. In&#xD;analyzing RBK, we also apply theories of improvisation. RBK created a platform&#xD;that gave both direction to choices and a clear playing pattern. This platform further&#xD;ensured that tasks could be executed at high speed and high intensity, described as&#xD;“flow”. Flow contributed to both speed and precision in the playing pattern. It is&#xD;concluded that the following is relevant for other organizations: 1) Forming a deeper&#xD;understanding of samhandling and ensuring top management commitment; 2)&#xD;Creating, establishing and maintaining samhandling in a manner that suits the organization;&#xD;and 3) Minimal structures can be of great importance for organizations&#xD;in unforeseen and risky situations."&#xD;

Abstract

Part of the Sport in the Global Society series, this innovative and creative text explores collective history, memory, and sport culture, tracking the passage of sports away from England. The author investigates why ‘elite’ Eng sports – such as rugby and cricket – became national sports in New Zealand and Australia, and asks why ‘working class’ Eng sports – such as football – have travelled less well to these areas. Focusing on these sports, the author tracks narratives and myths, tracing the passage of colonial truths, behaviours and practices. Clearly defined sections in the book focus on: * sport and tourism * sport and history * sport and memory. Using a refreshingly broad range of sources to analyze differences between popular culture and sporting memory, this book offers new perspectives on sport and makes an interesting reference for masters and postgraduate readers in sport and cultural studies.

Abstract

Si le système sportif, qui est né en Angleterre au xixe siècle, a constitué une rupture radicale avec les pratiques athlétiques antérieures, sa diffusion aux quatre coins de la planète par l'intermédiaire de l'impérialisme anglo-saxon a fortement contribué à façonner le monde dans lequel nous vivons. Quelle est cette chose dont l'impérialisme anglo-saxon faisait tant de cas ? De quelles valeurs de « civilisation », de quels codes moraux était-elle porteuse ? Quel accueil a-t-elle reçu dans les pays qui subissaient la présence coloniale ? C'est à cet examen essentiel que nous invite le présent ouvrage pour apprécier les raisons des éventuels rejets, des réappropriations plus ou moins radicales, et plus généralement des engouements extraordinaires auxquels a donné lieu l'apparition du phénomène sportif dans des milieux culturels très différents de celui d'origine. Dans cette perspective, les apports respectifs de l'histoire événementielle et de l'anthropologie sont confrontés et discutés.

Abstract

Premier à présenter cette approche comparée de l’évolution en France et en Allemagne, ce livre sur « Football et identité » expose les résultats de la recherche récente, afin de faire découvrir aux lecteurs que le football est, dans sa diversité et ses contradictions, un miroir de nos sociétés contemporaines : « Le Monde ne se résume sans doute pas au football, mais dans le football, et ce n’est pas un secret, se retrouve toute une partie du monde ». L’origine de l’engouement pour le foot doit être recherchée dans les conditions sociales, économiques, politiques et culturelles de son développement et, par conséquent, prend sens dans un système de relations extérieur au sport. Le lecteur peut appréhender la construction d’identités avec leurs spécificités nationales, régionales et culturelles et le football reste à analyser en tant que phénomène de masse, qu’il faut resituer dans son contexte afin d’éclairer les interactions entre ce sport et les autres secteurs de la société. Le football, en tant que sport global, et la mondialisation qui l’affecte exigent de surcroît de porter le regard au-delà des frontières nationales des deux pays.

Abstract

Sports economics is a relatively new field of research that is experiencing rapid growth in the economics literature. The importance of the sports industry to economies coupled with the availability of financial and productivity data have made the study of sports economics a useful avenue for exploring research questions that have eluded mainstream economics fields. The main goal of this Special Issue of the International Journal of Financial Studies is to encourage theoretical and applied research in sports economics, which is of interest to both academics and practitioners. For this purpose, this Special Issue on “Sports Finance” invites papers on topics, such as, but not limited to, salary determination, ticket pricing, revenue sharing, salary caps, competitive balance, new stadium financing, rival league behavior, determinants of revenue, television and media, tournament prize structures, financial distress in professional sports, financial fair play, financial control of sports clubs, Third Party Ownership, financial efficiency in professional sports, budget constrains and sport performance, financial information of sports, ownership of professional sport clubs and Crowdfunding in sports. Papers on both professional and amateur sports are welcome.

Abstract

The research studies included in this Special Issue highlight the fundamental contribution of the knowledge of environmental history to conscious and efficient environment conservation and management. The long-term perspective of the dynamics that govern the human–climate ecosystem is becoming one of the main focuses of interest in biological and earth system sciences. Multidisciplinary bio-geo-archaeo investigations into the underlying processes of human impact on the landscape are crucial to envisage possible future scenarios of biosphere responses to global warming and biodiversity losses. This Special Issue seeks to engage an interdisciplinary dialog on the dynamic interactions between nature and society, focusing on long-term environmental data as an essential tool for better-informed landscape management decisions to achieve an equilibrium between conservation and sustainable resource exploitation.

Abstract

Video game studies are a relative young but flourishing academic discipline. But within game studies, however, the perspective of religion and spirituality is rather neglected, both by game scholars and religion scholars. While religion can take different shapes in digital games, ranging from material and referential to reflexive and ritual, it is not necessarily true that game developers depict their in-game religions in a positive, confirming way, but ever so often games approach the topic critically and disavowingly. The religion criticisms found in video games can be categorized as follows: religion as (1) fraud, aimed to manipulate the uneducated, as (2) blind obedience towards an invisible but ultimately non-existing deity/ies, as (3) violence against those who do not share the same set of religious rules, as (4) madness, a deranged alternative for logical reasoning, and as (5) suppression in the hands of the powerful elite to dominate and subdue the masses into submission and obedience. The critical depictions of religion in video games by their developers is the focus of this special issue.
