Upcoming Release of National Research Report
Through its partnership with the Women’s Sports Foundation and the SHARP Center at the University of Michigan, CRPASH will release the second report in the “Progress Without Equity” series. Our research report, “The Decade of Decline,” a longitudinal study of gender equity in U.S. high school sports, is being released during September 2012. This descriptive data and analysis are intended to inform the public and school leaderships regarding gender equity in the allocation of athletic opportunities between 1993-94 through 2009-10. The report includes a set of policy recommendations formulated by the National Women’s Law Center, Washington DC.
Evidence-Based Research for the USTA Serves
A team of CRPASH researchers have conducted targeted academic research for the USTA Serves. Our project, “More Than a Game,” analyzes two national data sets in order to test for relationships between adolescent tennis participation and educational and developmental outcomes.
“USTA Serves is the National Charitable Foundation of the United States Tennis Association, Incorporated. USTA Serves is a not-for-profit entity that is dedicated to improving the quality of life among our nation’s youth and people with disabilities.
