Tucker Center major research report released: “Developing Physically Active Girls”

To kick off honoring and celebrating their 25th anniversary, the Tucker Center today released the third edition of its Tucker Center Research Report, “Developing Physically Active Girls: An Evidence-based Multidisciplinary Approach.” The 240-page report connects research-based knowledge to strategies and practices which help ensure that every girl has ample opportunity to fully engage in sport and physical activity. The report examines two essential questions: 1) What does research tell us about critical factors that influence adolescent girls’ physical activity; and, 2) What are the outcomes that participation in sports and physical activity have on adolescent girls? The report, an executive summary, and the graphic, “Positive Model for Developing Physically Active Girls,” are all available on the Tucker Center’s website at www.tuckercenter.org.
