Self Competence, Activity, Motor competence, and Physical fitness (SCAMP)

In Fall, 2014, The Morrison-Bruce Center conducted the first phase of a large-scale project that will investigate the relationships between physical fitness, physical activity, movement patterns and proficiency, and self-perceptions of competence in a variety of life domains. We hope to gain a better understanding of these variables in order to promote better health and increased enjoyment of physical activity in people of all ages. The first stage of the project involved studying the variables of interest in a college-aged population, with younger adolescents and children being assessed in future phases of the project.
