Troubled testing: UWindsor prof warns concussion testing for young athletes may be flawed

Many young athletes who have suffered a concussion may be at risk of returning to play too early because of invalid baseline testing, warns a University of Windsor professor.

Psychology associate professor Chris Abeare recently completed a study of 7,897 athletes between 10 and 21-years-old and found that 55.7 per cent failed at least one of four validity measures, suggesting that their baseline test scores are lower than their actual cognitive ability.

UWindsor history project earns Ontario Heritage Award

There were no easy games for the Chatham Coloured All-Stars.

It's what Wilfred "Boomer" Harding recalled decades after his team was forced to overcome adversity both on and off the baseball diamond to become champions of the Ontario Baseball Amateur Association's Intermediate B-1 class in 1934.

That road to the championship game was onerous.

The Black baseball team travelled across the province to compete in games, often being denied accommodations and forced to continue driving in precarious conditions before eventually reaching a welcome refuge.

Value of same-sex coaches extends beyond the court, says UWin student

Taylor Imeson wants to see more women in head coaching positions.

Not only would it provide female athletes with same-sex mentors, but she says it would inspire future generations of female coaches to pursue the career.

"I had always noticed that women's sports were growing, but there were barely any female coaches," says Imeson.

"Participants felt they had the necessary skills and self-efficacy to coach, however, due to various reasons, a majority did not identify coaching as a career aspiration."
